The 2019 Annual Representative Conference will held in Manchester on Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 June 2019.
ARC is an opportunity for the CSP’s members to come together for two days to discuss and debate matters of importance to members, the services they offer and the health and welfare of the community. The official ARC hashtag is #CSPARC19.

Booking your travel
Train travel should be booked using the trainline code and should be off-peak return rail fares. You can book your train tickets up to three months in advance to take advantage of cheaper fares. If travel is not booked at least a month in advance, you will be expected to fund half the costs unless there are exceptional circumstances or cheap fares are available. More information on Trainline bookings will be posted here in 2019.
Unless you are travelling from the Channel Islands or Northern Ireland, flights may only be booked if they cost less than the off-peak return train fare and you must gain permission from the Chief Executive's office before booking or travel claim expenses will not be paid.
