AULP Executive 

The Executive Group is the steering group for AULP. They meet several times a year and host an annual conference. They are always keen to hear from members who have good ideas for speakers or sessions at regional meetings and at conferences. We encourage sharing of information, contacts and good practice so please get in touch.

If you are already a member and would be interested in joining the committee, please please get in touch.
