ASM 2017 Booking & Update

Following the unexpected need to move the location of the ASM 2017, the North West Branch has acted swiftly. Llandudno is now the location for the ASM for 21st – 23rd April 2017.

Conference activities will be held at the St George’s Hotel. A group booking for accommodation has been made at The County Hotel, and members can take advantage of preferential rates using the accommodation booking form that can be downloaded from this page.

More detail about the ASM and accommodation is in these documents:

ASM 2017 – Important update

Important information from the NWRS Committee about the ASM 2017

We have just received very unfortunate news from The Lodge Hotel – the planned location for the ASM 2017 – which means we must find a new location for the ASM:

“It is with deep regret that I wish to inform you that due to a change in our personal circumstances (regarding my health) we are unable to fulfil your booking for April. I completely understand your disappointment, but we feel we have no option, as myself and wife are the main hosts and organisers for the hotel. We will reimburse your deposit. Please again accept our deepest apologies. Regards, Neil.”

We obviously hope Neil’s health improves very soon.

So where do we go from here? Well we get on with life and sort things out differently. So…

No-one had actually paid any money to ‘The Lodge’ for accommodation and they are returning the deposit paid by the Society so there is no financial loss, as it were.

The venue will obviously have to change and the price at a new venue may be higher (probably will be if we are realistic). We have been looking at places in Llandudno, but many are already booked. We have found one venue for the conference which is available and one hotel which is available so ‘watch this space’.

Sorry this is so ‘sketchy’ but we felt we needed to inform as many members as possible as soon as possible. As soon as new arrangements are sorted we will let you know.
