Members are booking early-bird tickets quicker than ever for the upcoming conference on 26 October. The day and dinner combination tickets will sell out soon so don’t delay if you’d like to come to the dinner as well as during the day.
It’s believed a combination of enhancements and having a break in 2018 has resulted in the uptake in early-bird tickets. BSAC’s Chief Executive Mary Tetley said:
We have built on the content that we know members love and we really do have a world-class line up. But we think what is also hitting the spot is the increased value we’re able to offer members by working with our supportive sponsors and partners.
All members are invited to BSAC’s event of the year. As previous years, the conference is open to all members but is most relevant for Diving Officers, Training Officers, Instructors and Branch Officers (and VERY importantly, members aspiring to be one or more of those things!).
