Our Sector Forums and Specialist Interest Groups meet between three and six times a year.
They provide Members with the opportunity to discuss current and future issues specifically affecting identified industrial or occupational sectors of special interest. They facilitate a flow of information between the AELP executive and the wider membership, ensuring that the executive is as fully informed as possible on sector-specific issues to inform overall policy and thinking.
Additionally, they give members the opportunity to hear first-hand from the executive about issues that may impact upon their sector interests.
The SIGs and Sector Forums aim to lead thinking on the development of our policy, with regard to sector-specific issues. They help spread good practice amongst members; stimulate new thinking and new ways of working; and allow for networks of professionals to be built up to support excellence in provision.
These meetings (through the Chair) support and promote AELP policy in all public settings.
