The four-week countdown to the first of this springs season of donorflex Regional User Group roadshows is about to start and four of our venues have already reached or passed last years attendance figures.
What's more, the house full notice has gone up at the North-west gathering, with another close to the same status. So, if you still intend to book, hurry.
Were also approaching the point where we confirm the agenda for each venue and start preparing material. That work starts next week.
Weve already inked in the important topics of Consent & Preferences, and future donorflex development, for two of the four sessions.
Weve already been asked to cover some specific topics in the other two workshop sessions. But youre helping to shape the rest.
Weve asked delegates to let us know, region by region, what you want to see on the agenda at each RUG. Weve been impressed by the response, if not completely surprised by the favourites emerging.
Youll read about those in a moment. But, first, lets tell you about...
As ever, our choice of venues has been made with cost, comfort and ease of access in mind.
The cost of a seat will be £55 plus VAT.
Before we ask you to add your voice to the suggestions for two of the sessions, heres the current order of popularity, region by region:
A click of this RUG 2019 agenda link will open an email message with the subject line already inserted.
What we need you to do first is give us your details:
Then look at the following topics and tell us your top five choices, in order of preference. Please note, we want to see one reply per organisation, so please pool your thoughts, if appropriate:
If you dont see your preferred module or topic in the list, simply add it in the appropriate place at the foot of the email.
9:00am: Delegate registration / Refreshments
9.45am: Welcome / Housekeeping
10.00am: Consent & Preferences management
11.30am: You decide! Well cover the topics that have emerged as priorities for your region
12.45pm: Munch and mingle
1.30pm: You decide again! More of the topics that have emerged as priorities for your region
2.45pm: The donorflex roadmap: Your chance to contribute to the next phase of donorflex development
Ask your donorflex Liaison Manager (DLM) the colleague whose login credentials give access to areas of the donorflex website that are off-limits to most to click the Bookings button, on the right of the main menu, and choose the venue.
Its worth remembering a couple of things.
Firstly, the immediate fields of the booking form are for the details of the person wholl be our point of contact for the booking.
If that person is also a delegate, which isnt always the case, we need those details to be repeated after youve clicked the blue New delegate button. Its also worth clicking the Update booking button just the once, after youve completed your registration. If you click it after each delegate has been detailed, you and we will receive multiple email confirmations.
Secondly, if you need to replace a delegate with another colleague, please click the Yes radio button in the Cancelled? area, then and click New delegate to add the replacement.
Why? Well, if you simply over-write one delegates details with another, we wont know that youve done so. Thats particularly critical if dietary or access needs are important.
Thats it! We look forward to another great RUG season.
