2018 NEBA CONGRESS REMINDER Trawling through some old stuff, I found this advert for the NEBA Congress in 2004 - which was probably at Otterburn with Susan Green as Congress Secretary.
It provides a good opportunity to remind you of this year's congress on November 2nd-4th, and that there are only a couple of days left to book special rates at the Marriott Hotel if you are staying there.
(and another from 2002)
ANDREW KAMBITES AT DARLINGTON Andrew will give a seminar at St Georges Bridge Centre on Saturday 22nd Sept. The event will begin with a two course lunch and will be followed by an afternoon talk on 'Competitive Bidding'. More details can be found HERE or on the Darlington website.
