Your chance to debate key issues, listen to expert speakers and get involved with shaping SAS policy.

Date: 22 May 2018

Location: London

Time: 9:00AM - 5:00PM

Empowering SAS doctors

The SAS conference is an opportunity for nominated representatives to network with fellow colleagues, debate key issues and listen to expert speakers. It is also the main SAS policy setting event for the year ahead, with motions taken forward to the annual representative meeting, which plays a crucial role in the BMA's work.

 

Who can attend?

Each regional and national SASC is permitted to nominate five representatives to attend the conference. We also encourage two deputies to be nominated should one of the five nominated representatives be unable to attend.

All nominated representatives will be emailed a registration form to complete by BMA conferences to book their place at the conference. Once you have received this, please submit your completed form online as soon as possible to confirm your attendance.

 

Teach-in for first time representatives

For those new to the SAS conference, a teach-in will be held from 9 – 9.25am on Tuesday 22 May 2018 which provides you with an introduction to conference procedures.

 

Workshops

A selection of workshops will take place during the day on topics including: 

  • Member relations
  • Bullying and harassment
  • SAS charter – benefits and implementation

Nominated representatives will be able to select their preferred choice of workshop on the registration form.

 

Breakfast meeting: pension planning (optional)

An optional breakfast meeting will take place on changes to the NHS pension scheme and the effect on SAS doctors.

 

SAS conference dinner (optional)

A conference dinner will be held the night before the conference, on Monday 21 May 2018 at BMA House.
This is an opportunity to meet and network with colleagues in a more informal environment, prior to the conference. Representatives are also welcome to bring a guest to the dinner.

Tickets for both representatives and guests are £35.00 (including VAT). Please note the cost of guest tickets cannot be reimbursed as an expense. Please indicate on the registration form if you wish to attend the dinner.

Reasonable travel and accommodation expenses will be reimbursed for representatives, as well as the cost of the conference dinner. All expenses should be claimed through Concur. More information on how to claim your expenses through Concur will be included in the conference joining instructions sent to you once your place is confirmed.
