Annual Conference 2013 - Let's Get Moving!
Thank you to the IPPEA members who attended this year's 10th Annual Conference at St. Patrick's College. We had a very successful day!
We would like to thank you for your valued support on Saturday, 2nd March and for making all the journeys to the event no matter how short. We were aware that some people travelled considerable distances. The support at our AGM was really encouraging to the committee.
We have now received the workshop notes and over the next 2/3 weeks we will compile them into a booklet format and upload them on to the members section.
