At the UCISA AGM last month, the Executive Committee presented the outline strategy for the Association. The strategy was informed by the market research carried out by Housebrands last year. The feedback from that research and the outline strategy were summarised in the presentation and flyer. There was a good discussion on the strategy at the AGM which the Executive will be taking into account when refining the strategy at the next Executive meeting on 27 – 28 April. We would welcome further input, particularly from those that were unable to attend the AGM – please forward any comments to Peter Tinson, UCISA Executive Director, by Monday 24 April.

Applications are welcomed from across all disciplines and grades. We particularly welcome applications from junior staff.
