I’ve been approached by two AMHPs – one at a conference and one via Twitter – to suggest that we organise social events for AMHPs to meet up to discuss issues pertinent to AMHP practice (and I’m sure many other things besides…)
This is a great idea but it’s not something the board could commit to at the present time – the event management takes up just about all of the board’s time. If there were going to be something like this under the badge of AMHPA it would have to be led by AMHPA members and I’m sure we could help with publicity and promotion.
So – is there an appetite for organising a meet-up of AMHPs anywhere in the region outside of the events? The conferences are great for meeting up with other AMHPs but it’s not the ideal environment for sharing and discussing practice issues in a semi-formal way.
The Twitter user who contacted us provided us with this link to Meetup with some examples of how it could be organised. I’m going to open commenting on the blog posts for if anybody has any suggestions – you’ll have to be registered with the site to post – and there is also the Forum.
