2017 Chair's Report now available
FACE's Chair, Prof John Storan, has just released his 2017 Chair's Report, which details our organisation's work over the last 12 months. The highlights of this past year have been our conitnued committment to our membership and growing our national and international partnerships. The recent FACE members' survey will provide us with an opportunity to better capture the membeship's needs and what support we can offer.
FACE's four year strategic plan (2016-2020) was also developed and signed off by the Executive, which will allow us to meet upcoming challenges in the education sector and beyond.
Of course, the crown jewel in our calendar remains our annual conference, and the 2016 iteration in Belfast was no exception!
