The AEV Event Managers Working Group convened at the SEC, Glasgow on Thursday November 23, 2017 for its final meeting of the year.
Chair Michelle Baldwin began proceedings with a welcome to all 20 attendees, and thanked the SEC for hosting the meeting. She then moved on to the apologies and initiated round table introductions for the benefit of new members to the working group.
After approving the notes from the last meeting, the group moved straight on to discuss the pack of standardised forms produced by the subcommittee and establish those that have the most relevance and utility across venues.
There was an update from the eGuide working group, followed by further discussions about the changes in legislation and advice about medical demonstrations and treatments, and further changes to these sections in the eGuide.
