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.

The AROPS AGM in October saw a big reshuffle at the top as John Kidd (left) retired as President and Bill Gillen ended his nine years as Chairman to become the new President.


Peter Jakobek (below) of Bristol Grammar School was elected the new Chairman and Hannah Baker of Queen’s Gate School becomes the new Secretary. All were roundly thanked and welcomed. Click here for full details of the AGM and other new recruits.
