Hello to all our MALG Members and contacts!

Lockdown may now finally be lifting and we are looking forward to running face-to-face events again but our virtual events programme is still going strong and the future is likely to be a combination of both.

Thanks to all those who have been attending the MALG Members Friday Forum. We are back this week (28 May) at 10am for an open discussion and, as a reminder, resources from the Mental Health Awareness Week-themed session with Chris Lees of Money and Mental Health Policy Institute on 14 May are still available on the password-protected Zoom link page.

MALG Conference 2021 – book now, pay later

We are still closely monitoring the easing of restrictions with a view to making a firm decision on whether to go ahead with the MALG Conference at No.11 Cavendish Square in London on 28 October 2021 at the beginning of July. In the meantime, you can book your place now here and not commit to paying for your tickets until everything is confirmed. Thanks to all those who have booked so far – it’s great to see there is an appetite to attend after such a challenging year!

Please let us know if there are any specific topics and/or speakers you are interested in and we will take them into account when developing the programme over the coming months.

We are very grateful to our confirmed sponsors (IntrumDukes BailiffsLanternBristow & Sutor, and Lester Aldridge) and exhibitors (IntrumBristow & SutorExperianentitledto, and TV Licensing) for their support. There are several sponsorship packages and exhibition stands remaining. Please contact bob.winnington@malg.org.uk if you are interested.
