SROC 2020 is open for bookings

2020 is a very special year as it is the 30th year since SROC was founded (although not the 30th conference as the first conferences were organised under the auspices of the, then, CUA). It’s also our Chair’s 30th year of working in HE and her last conference as Chair of SROC, so we’d like the conference dinner to be a bit of a celebration event – which means don’t forget to pack your ‘glad rags’!

Accommodation is in a number of local hotels and the main conference events will be held in the iconic Oastler Building with our Monday evening event hosted by Huddersfield Students’ Union.

Following on from our optional Monday afternoon sessions at Cranfield last year, we will be offering a range of optional visits including the award-winning Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre, Heritage Quay and 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, all of which will be bookable in advance.

We have a bumper crop of volunteers from across the higher education sector to deliver some wide-ranging topics as breakout sessions and a variety of plenary speakers, including Huddersfield’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Bob Cryan CBE DL. Visit the conference schedule here to see the sessions on offer. This year we have more sessions than ever to select from, ranging from new approaches to managing student records, innovative support services and keeping statutory and regulatory demands in focus.

You will be pleased to know that we are able to keep the delegate fees for the conference at 2019 levels, so a full 2-day residential delegate package will cost £440, which we feel is a very competitive rate for a conference in the higher education sector, which offers a wide variety of development and networking opportunities.

We hope you agree with us that SROC continues to be great value for money with relevant, focused content and a supportive and vibrant community. If you do not already engage with us on Twitter or Linked-In then why not? Our Twitter handle is @SROC_HE so look out for our ‘Week in the Life’ Twitter take-overs from staff across the sector, and keep an eye out for our regular blogs.

All of us on the SROC Committee.
