We’re delighted to announce that our 24th Annual Conference will be taking place on Thursday 14th September 2023 at the Hilton Belfast.
We will be looking at the grassroots efforts that preceded the Good Friday Agreement that marked its 25th Anniversary this year. Many civic society groups were doing the hard work of cooperation and building understanding, often below the radar or without great acclaim. We want to recognise the important work they did in the years leading up to the Agreement.
