UCAC Annual Conference, 26 - 27 April 2013, Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod

The Annual Conference is the main policy making body and provides members with the opportunity to discuss issues of concern and to develop official union policy. 

Motions are presented to the Annual Conference, held during the months of March, April or May. At the Conference, motions become resolutions (or are rejected) on which UCAC will campaign.
Delegates to Annual Conference represent the County Societies and the various specialist Departments along with National Executive members. Voting rights are restricted to official delegates but all members of the union are welcomed to attend the Conference and to express their opinion.
The Annual Conference travels to various locations across Wales every year. It is an excellent opportunity to socialise and meet and get to know fellow union members and to discuss both formally and informally.  We hope to see you there!
