Please get in touch if your company is interested in sponsoring future issues of the Act TravelWise E-Bulletin.


In this issue you'll hear about our full-day training event Travel Planning and Parking Management for Universities and Hospitals taking place on Tuesday 2 April at University of Birmingham, led by Richard Adams and Chris Carter of AECOM. We are working with the NHS, the EAUC and our members to reach as many hospital trusts, universities and colleges as possible - and hopefully creating an ongoing forum. Please inform your contacts as well. Registration is now open.

Further events and regional meetings are to be announced, including a workshop on 15 May at Highways England in Guildford, to be held back-to-back with the South East regional meeting. If you have ideas for other events/training or wish to lead one yourself, please do get in touch.

Also in Birmingham, our Annual Conference & AGM took place on 31 January and is reviewed in this issue. With several new directors appointed at the AGM, our new Board of Directors (click for photos/bios) will hold its first meeting in March.
