2020 conference sponsorship applications

  LCGB is pleased to announce that we are again sponsoring two places at our annual Conference, and we welcome applications.   This funding reflects our commitment to reducing barriers to our profession in the UK, supporting aspiring IBCLCs, especially those who are not health professionals, and those from groups which are under-represented, thus encouraging greater diversity.   We will be looking for applicants who fulfil several criteria.   The first and essential one is membership of LCGB, and our brief is to give preference to candidates working towards certification or re-certification.   We will also consider:  
  • readiness to write about the experience of attending this event
  • involvement with LCGB, (or suggestions as to how you might become involved, and how much time you could commit)
  • evidence of offering support and benefit to breastfeeding mothers
  • whether this is offered on a voluntary basis
  • how the candidate will use the knowledge acquired at Conference
  Deadline for applications by 3rd April, 2020   All applicants will be informed of the decision by Wednesday 15th April 2020. The early bird rate will be extended for unsuccessful applicants, and should the successful applicants have already booked and paid for their Conference place, their fee will be refunded.   NB: The 2020 LCGB Conference sponsorship place is for the whole event—includes accommodation and all meals from Friday am till Sat afternoon tea—but does NOT cover any further costs e.g. your travel or extra nights.
