ASIF Council Meeting, Copenhagen 29-31 May 2022

ASIF Council Meeting, Copenhagen 29-31 May 2022

We are delighted that so many of our members have already registered to attend the upcoming Council Meeting – we are looking forward to seeing many of our friends and colleagues in person after so long.

The Council Meetings are the most important event in ASIF’s calendar.  It is an opportunity for member representatives to meet and to network with other Patient organisations from around the whole world.

The programme will include keynote speakers on topics including the latest advances in axSpA research.  We will also hold some workshops so that we can get your ideas and opinions on what ASIF is and should be doing.

We have not met ‘in person’ for a few years due to the pandemic and we have had many new members join ASIF in the last few years.  I encourage you to consider sending someone to join us in Copenhagen if you can.   If you have not yet registered and plan to come, please do so before the end of March.

You can register here.

We are able to help with letters of sponsorship to support visa applications, please contact Jo Davies for assistance.

We already have around 40 delegates from over 20 countries signed up.

The full programme will be emailed to registrants in April, but we’ve included an overview below.
