The BIG ‘L’ Challenge at The Convention
At the 2012 Societies Convention we are laying down the challenge to our valued members to gain Qualification accreditation for their work.
Venue will be a number of rooms at Hammersmith Novotel Convention Centre on Wednesday 11 Jan 2012 10.00-18.00 and Thursday 12 Jan 10.00-18.00.
