NFCC Spring Conference

The Queens Hotel, Leeds

We are pleased to announce our annual NFCC Spring Conference will take place on 9th and 10th April at The Queens Hotel in Leeds.

Aimed at strategic managers, this year’s Spring Conference will focus on emerging themes and initial learning from Inspection and the establishment of Professional Standards. We are delighted to be joined over the two days by Sir Thomas Winsor, the newly appointed Chair and Vice Chair of the Professional Standards Board and also representatives from the NPCC to discuss their own experience of inspection. We will also see sessions on initial learning from Grenfell and future impacts on the FRS and the NFCC Improvement map – what are the NFCC doing to address the emerging themes for improvement.  

The conference will begin at 12 noon on 9th April and close with lunch on 10th. We will endeavour to get representation from all FRS’s senior management teams at the conference. Book your place now and be part of how we take the sector forward during these challenging times.
