Conference Committee

What the committee or SIG does

A small group of volunteers and key BACP events staff work throughout the year and together organise all aspects of the annual training conference. The theme, content and structure of the conference is informed by delegate feedback from past conferences and current professional issues. Committee members draw upon their collective experience and knowledge, consulting with specialists in the counselling and psychotherapy world, to bring the very best conference experience to delegates.

How to join

Nearly every year there are changes to the committee membership, with most volunteers staying on the committee for 2 or 3 years. BACP UC members can contact committee members throughout the year if they are interested in volunteering. Committee members also speak directly with delegates at the conferences to raise awareness of the work of the committee, and to generate interest in volunteering on the committee.
