Quarterly national meetings
The Steering Group agrees the meeting programme. Members are encouraged to suggest topics and assist with organisation.
A UK-CAB member is appointed as convener for the meeting to:
- Chair the meeting
- Set the detailed programme
- Ensure high quality speakers and trainers, including from pharmaceutical companies
- Ensure high quality background material is produced and the meeting is advertised
- Oversee production of a meeting report
The coordinator handles administrative and logistical aspects of arranging meetings.
Ad hoc meetings
Ad hoc meetings operate in a similar way to the quarterly meetings.
Time for networking is included in all meetings, and wherever possible, on other occasions when UK-CAB members are present, for example BHIVA conferences. Suggestions on how to increase opportunities for advocates to meet face-to-face are welcome (and, importantly, offers to organise these). A Steering Group member will aim to attend every networking occasion.
