    GENERAL INFORMATION

    FOREWORD

    Dear Network,

    The beginning of each academic year carries with it energy, motivation and inspiration to succeed, I hope… We have been in touch, via email, Skype or Facebook, but the true inception of our term doesn’t start until the Autumn National Council Meeting. It is here that the National Board gets to meet you and you get to meet other Local Groups across our diverse network. It provides the perfect pool for collaboration and discussion, which is why I am delighted to see so many groups registered.

    The structure for this National Council Meeting has changed. Now more closely modelled on the ever-popular International Council Meetings, it promises to be unforgettable. I urge you all to take part in the discussions, challenging each other to improve both yourselves and the groups you represent. This NCM is particularly important as we will be asking Council for permission to register ELSA United Kingdom as a charity, giving us giving us precedent when approaching potential partners, professionals and even our members, so it is important you get involved!

    I realise just how many pages this document contains however, I can assure you that we plan to play as hard as we work. Five members of the National Board have recently returned home from the 72nd International Council Meeting in Sarajevo which means that ELSA Spirit will be running high, with plenty of international drinks to be had, and even more punishments – so make sure you’re on time!

    In all seriousness, I am looking forward to this National Council Meeting more so than any before and I am confident that we will have a great time.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Ethan Dodd President ELSA United Kingdom
