Working in Partnership
Oxford 18 - 20 April
The theme for the 2012 conference will be Working in Partnership – creating effective networks throughout the historic, natural and built environments to maximise resources, increase public benefit and build a stronger sector.
In 2012 the conference includes discussion papers, seminars and training workshops, providing an excellent opportunity to get up to date with current issues effecting all those working within the historic environment sector. Both formal and informal social events provide ample opportunity to carry on debates and discussions when sessions have closed, and to meet up with friends and colleagues, old and new. The conference will kick off with a keynote address followed by the first IfA conference debate; What is the future for Local Planning Authorities and archaeology?
To avoid disappointment, it is advisable to pre-book training workshop sessions you wish to attend. There will be places available at conference, and available slots can be booked via our workshops noticeboard in the Main Hall. However, as spaces are limited, a space on a workshop cannot be guaranteed without pre-booking.
