THE ANNUAL FORUM FOR WASTE AND RECYCLING OFFICERS
If you are a LARAC member and coming to this year's event, arriving the night before, LARAC would be delighted if you could join us at their reception in the Banqueting Suite in the East Midlands Conference Centre from 20.00 on the 9th October. There will be a buffet dinner, drinks and games.
For anyone staying at the Jubilee Conference Centre there will be transport to take you back to your hotel after the reception ends. It'll be a great way for us to welcome you to our Conference.
So, if you are coming to the Conference - we have something special to ask you
Our charity this is is FOOD BANK #LARACGIVINGBACK and we are asking each one of our 400+ attendees to bring two non-perishable, in-date food products with them to the event, in hope that we create a literal mountain of donated food that we can take to our partnered charity, Hope Nottingham, to be distributed to the vulnerable and in-need members of our hosting city’s community.
Please get involved and spread the word via social media, we want to make it an absolute success!
We are asking all attendees to bring along a reusable water bottle to the conference in an effort to try and eliminate single use packaging. China mugs will be available on the day for all of your hot drinks, but please do bring a reusable coffee cup if you have one at home.
If you have any questions regarding the event, please call a member of the events team on 0207 633 4522.
We look forward to welcoming you next week!
IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY BOOKED - THERE IS STILL TIME!
"LARAC was incredibly useful to learn lots of the latest information and a chance to be away from the office to reflect on ways to improve the service. A valued opportunity when times in the office can be somewhat busy. It was also a great opportunity to network with people from other services to learn their best practices and with the suppliers/agencies to learn what's available." - 2017 attendee
With Scholars attending also on 9th October for their special seminars, this is the one event of the year specifically targeted at local authority waste professionals.
This year's scholars - if you missed out on applying for a free place, with accommodation and travel and an extra half day of seminars - then go to the Scholarship page and find out all about it - and make sure you apply next year.
