WGII Calendar

PURPOSE OF THE CALENDAR

If you take any one WGII event, Certification week for example, long before it happens quite a number of other plans need to be in place. Trainees need lots of forewarning about the dates so that holidays and other personal events can be planned; instructors need to be located; events need to be arranged. Even before all of this the National Executive needs to take stock of the current needs. The purpose of the calendar is to help co-ordinate all such WGII plans so that matters are discussed, decided and published when they need to be. The calendar also helps avoid clashes with other events that are popular for many of our members. Obviously the calendar will require modifications from time to time but it should help alert us to the run-on consequences of some changes.

Members should note that the calendar is normally revised at the November WGII meeting.
