College Board Members' Conference
The CDN College Board Members' Conference will take place on Tuesday 25 October 2016 at the Hilton, Glasgow. Building on the launch of the 'Guide for Board Members in the College Sector', the conference will bring Board Members together and provide them with opportunities to network, share experiences and learn from recent developments in the sector. We are delighted that the Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science, Shirley-Anne Somerville, will provide a keynote address.
