CONGRATULATIONS to Guardians Etc and Cambridge Guardians Ltd for gaining full AEGIS accreditation, our newest members. That brings our Guardianship Organisations members up to 37 and there are many more inspections in the pipeline. Another busy year for the AEGIS inspectors.
We have a change of speakers at our Spring Conference. Louise Tickle, award winning journalist, will be speaking on PR Crisis Management instead of Janet Murray. She writes for the Guardian, Observer, Times, Sunday Times and Newsweek
magazine, and has extensive experience of training universities and non-governmental organisations in how to manage their relationships with the media. www.louisetickle.co.uk
