Call of for Expressions of Interest to Host 2018 Conference Deadline: 13th November 2017 12 noon
At our Chapter’s Annual General Meeting in June, it was agreed that we would again invite members to submit expressions of Interest (EoI) to host our next (5th) Annual Conference in 2018, sometime in the period April - early June. Our Foundation meeting in 2013 was held at Aston in Birmingham, our inaugural conference in 2014 was held in Winchester, our 2015 Conference at Glasgow Caledonian University, in 2016 Nottingham University Business School hosted us, and for our 4th Conference we went to the North East to Newcastle Business School, University of Northumbria.See link to the Chapter website with information on our previous conferences.
In this 10th Anniversary Year of PRME, the 4th PRME UK and Ireland Conference “Envisioning the Future of Responsible Management Education in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals” was held on 26-27th June 2017, hosted by Newcastle Business School at the University of Northumbria, attracted attracted 70 participants with many students and international participants.
We are keen to continue to vary the location for 2018. Therefore, signatory institutions that would like to host the 2017 Conference are asked to submit an expression of interest (maximum one page) outlining where this could be, why it would be good to hold the conference there, and confirming what facilities/ideas/theme you may have for the conference. In order to keep delegate costs down, please note that the host of the conference are expected to provide conference facilities free of charge but costs of catering and participant accommodation are charged to delegates. In your EoI you need to confirm that you have discussed the proposal with your School’s management and you are happy to host the conference on this basis.
Applications will be considered within two weeks of the deadline and the decision communicated to the potential host by early December so that planning for the conference can start in earnest.
