We are very pleased to invite KPA representatives to our second KPA day, following the success of the first one last year. The KPA Day for 2014 will take place on 29 March 2014, between 10.15 am and 4-30 pm, and will be held at the Arden Hotel, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, Birmingham, B92 0EH‎.  The format of the day will be as last year. There will be presentations  from KPAs on “ What my KPA does”, an update on the arrangements for opting out in Wales, information from an Advocacy Officer, our Helpline Manager and our Fundraiser on a typical day for them; as well as opportunities for general discussion about  NKF’s work. We will, of course, have our AGM and a Council meeting during the day, details of which have already been sent out.  

There will be no cost for attending the day. However, NKF will not pay for any travel costs for KPA representatives this year. We are hoping that all KPAs will send representatives to the KPA day and there is no limit on the number of people attending from a KPA.  A pro-forma will be sent to all KPAs to complete to confirm your attendance and should be returned to Margaret Parkin at the NKF HQ by 7th March, 2014.

 Refreshments will be served throughout the day -   SCROLL DOWN FOR LATEST PROGRAMME
