Over 150 members attended the BOA Conference at the Runnymede-on-Thames Hotel, Egham between 8th and10th November to hear a wide range of expert speakers, meet their fellow practitioners and attend the 2013 AGM. We are delighted that many osteopaths were able to participate, and that feedback on the event was so positive.
For the first time, new Council members were chosen by membership vote, and we are pleased to announce that Jonathan Bailey-Teyletche, Mia Lederman and Helen Lumbard have been elected and, of course, Stephen Hartshorn has now taken up his role as our new President.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported us, and we look forward to seeing you again at next year’s event, details of which will be available in the New Year.
We have produced a leaflet for members to print and use when approaching their local GP practices. We have printed a limited number of these for use at health professional events and are able to provide small numbers of these printed A4 leaflets to members on request.
