Eighteenth Annual General Meeting and CPD Event
Saturday 21st September 2019 – Holiday Inn Milton Keynes Central
We warmly invite you to join us in Milton Keynes this autumn for a time of learning and friendship.
Our event theme is ‘Connections, Communications and Conversations’. We aim to provide an event that builds on these three topics to continue IFPA’s growth and development as a centre/hub/organisation of excellence for professional aromatherapy practice.
We are so looking forward to spending this time with you and have included an optional networking “night before” event. On Friday evening there will be a fun and informal marketing workshop followed by drinks and supper in the hotel’s Marco Pierre White restaurant. Great company, lively conversation and good food – we hope some of you will be able to join us! You will be able to order your own preference from the restaurant menu, and IFPA will provide the wine!
Our CPD day will focus on workshops delivered by dynamic and knowledgeable aromatherapy experts. Full details of the speakers, the content of their workshops and the full timetable of the day coming soon. An outline of this event is attached for your information.
The AGM part of the day (approx. 90 mins) will be an opportunity for you to learn more about the IFPA organisation that has been developed in response to your passion and professionalism and is there to support you and your practice. There will be time to chat over refreshments and a delicious lunch is provided free of charge which will give you the opportunity to meet old friends and make some new ones and mingle with the team behind the IFPA volunteer board of directors.
Our Holiday Inn Milton Keynes Central venue is convenient for motorway and railway links and easily accessible from Heathrow and Birmingham. If you arrive on the train, board member Craig Vassie will organise a shuttle service to collect you and bring you to the venue.
