Welcome to the website of SIGBI’s 88th Federation Conference being held in Belfast from 27th to 29th October 2022. The conference will be held in the improved and extended ICC, Belfast. This will be the first physical face-to-face conference since Bournemouth 2019 and we hope everyone will be pleased to get together again. And Belfast is just the city to do that.
The Conference Committee is busy planning a vibrant Conference to enthuse and excite everybody.
The theme of the Conference is ‘Climate for Change’ and there are four dynamic Keynote Speakers (focusing on Education, Health, Environment/Climate and Women (gender equality)) together with Programme Action and Membership workshops. Of course, there will also be sessions managed by our Programme and Membership Teams.
It will be starting with a Friendship Evening on the Thursday so that all can meet up with those they have not seen since Bournemouth and to make new friends. This will have an ‘Irish’ flavour including live entertainment by Celtic Storm. You will remember seeing them at the Belfast 2020 virtual conference. How could we not have them in 2022!
So please do come and be inspired and enjoy yourselves. Oh! And there will be an opportunity for you to spend your money in the exhibition hall, with lots of different stalls.
The members of clubs in London Anglia Region and Northern Ireland look forward to welcoming you.
Fáilte go Béal Fierste!
Joyce Boorman (SI Ipswich & District) – Chair of Conference
Catherine Milhench (SI Downpatrick & District) –
Deputy Chair of Conference
