Opportunity to join the PCRS Conference Organising Committee
The PCRS conference is one of the highlights of the PCRS calendar. This year, we are excited to be bringing back our regular face-to-face conference and we’ll be travelling down to Telford International Centre on 22nd September spring in our step!
We can’t run this programme without the support, dedication and commitment of our Conference Organising Committee who are critical to the success of the conference. This Committee is responsible for advising on and developing the conference programme and selecting speakers.
We recruit new members to the committee each year to ensure we always have fresh thinking and new, innovative ideas. This year, we have four vacancies available and we are now inviting applications for new members on the Conference Organising Committee. We welcome applications from all members and to help balance the multi-professional nature of the team are particularly keen to recruit nurses to the committee.
Applicants will be members of PCRS and, ideally, be regular attenders of the PCRS Conference and must have attended at least one respiratory conference in the recent past. You can take the opportunity to learn more about the role by talking to Katherine Hickman and Darush Attar Zadeh (past and new chair of the conference organising committee) at conference this year.
Planning for the 2023 conference will start immediately following this years' conference. The Conference Organising Committee will be holding an in person meeting in late October to develop the plans and programme for the forthcoming year's annual conference. Further meetings will then take place via conference call supported by email correspondence to fine tune the plans and to see them through to fruition.
What our committee members say…..
…My experience of being on the Conference Organising Committee is that it is highly rewarding and feels a great privilege to be part of the organisational journey.
…It's a uniquely rewarding part of involvement in PCRS activities and genuinely stimulating to develop the conference with a varied and talented team.
I would highly recommend the Conference Organising Committee to anyone who would like to get more involved - I have learned such a lot and met some fantastic people from across the respiratory spectrum.
