AHECS Event – Reconnect and Reimagine – 27th April 2023
While the Association has been very active online with its members over the past three years providing opportunities for learning and connection, there has not been an opportunity to bring members from across the country together in person until now.
We are holding an event in RCSI, St Stephen’s Green on Thursday, 27th April 2023.
The theme for this event is Reconnect and Reimagine, which we hope will give all our members time to reconnect with their AHECS colleagues from across the country, to meet new members, and to continue our reimaging of what our careers services will look like in the future. It will include short talks, discussions, and lots of networking time.
