We’re delighted to announce that The SDS Group (Education & Heritage) will be sponsoring this year’s conference and will be taking an exhibition stand at Prior Park College where you can chat to them about their digital archiving solutions.

Prior Park College in Bath is the exciting venue for the 2017 Conference.

Not many days now to the AROPS Conference, Click here for the programme.

In response to enthusiasm at previous conferences we’re making a change to the format this year with the opportunity for each delegate to attend two discussion groups during the day. There will be just one presentation in the morning – Mark Coote of the Wells Cathedral School Foundation on “Working together: alumni societies and development professionals” – and then two sessions of discussion groups allowing you to benefit from advice and opinions on a wider range of topics including data protection, living archives, career support, social media and events. For complete coverage, why not invite one or more of your members/colleagues to attend and make their choice of two topics.

As usual, the dinner will be a convivial occasion held, this year, at Prior Park College in the beautiful Bath countryside. The aim is to finish by 9.30pm allowing time for train travel home if needed.
