LLL Leaders Weekend 2015
September 18, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - September 20, 2015 @ 3:00 pm€3.00 – €100.00
This years Leaders Weekend is taking place on the 18th, 19th & 20th September 2015. The venue this year is the Dromantine Retreat and Conference Centre, Newry, Co Down.
This is an important training weekend for Leaders and Leader applicants. It provides an opportunity for you to update your skills and resources to enable you to provide the latest information and help to mums and Health Professionals.
Please contact Jan, Margaret or Kay if Group finances are a barrier to attending the weekend.
Check in is from 4pm at the registration desk. All attendees and babies/toddlers will have to register, this is a health and safety requirement.
All bedrooms are unsuite and have single beds. Mums with babies/toddlers will have their own room but in order to keep the cost so low we need Leaders to share with another Leader unless there is a specific reason why a Leader is unable to share. In this case you need to contact Kay otherwise you will be assigned a share with another Leader. (If like me you share at conference then perhaps you can arrange to share with that leader again).
