LifeLines Autumn 2020 Conference News:
coming soon to a screen near you…

At the time of writing, Britain is beginning to emerge from the lockdown imposed in response to the Covid 19 crisis. Some things are returning almost to business as usual, and a lot more are coming back to life in a modified form. But so far there is no government guidance about when indoor gatherings of significant numbers of people will be considered safe. It could be many months.

For this reason – and also because many LifeLines people from office-holders to members, and guest speakers, are reluctant or unable to contemplate travelling and attending in person for now – we have, with great regret, decided to cancel the LifeLines conference we had been planning for Saturday 3rd October in London. However, we are instead going to have a virtual conference and AGM on Zoom, on the same day. The conference will take place from 11am to 2pm with a half-hour break, and the AGM will be held immediately afterwards. You can of course leave and rejoin at any time. Tech support will be available if you need help to join the conference.

We will provide more details about the event as soon as we can, but feel this could be a very positive way to respond to a situation that affects us all. We are excited to hold a special conference which will be free, and accessible to members who are unable to attend the London days.

You will need to pre-register by email, after which you’ll be sent a link to click on to join the conference. Instructions on how to pre-register, and more details about the event, will be sent to members by co-ordinators nearer the date, and will also be here on the website. We aim to have a combination of virtually meeting and talking with other members, a guest speaker and short features from people connected to LifeLines. If you had already booked for the London event, you will receive a full refund.

Another (further-off) date for your diary: the 2021 LifeLines conference will take place on Saturday 9th October at the usual central London venue.

Stay safe and well.
