The Applied Control Technology Consortium
This meeting is open to Steering Group Members and other invited ACTC members only.
NOTE: This meeting has since been held.
The Steering Group is the body responsible for ensuring that the ACTC continues to deliver the range and quality of services demanded by ACTC members. Although the Steering Group meeting is only open to Steering Group members, we would be delighted to have some new faces attend the meeting to experience and contribute to the discussions. Further, all ACTC members are invited to forward their thoughts and comments on the future direction of the ACTC.
This, the 27th Steering Group meeting, will again be held at Ross Priory, Loch Lomond, starting at 1pm and finishing at 5pm. An evening dinner has again been arranged for those Steering Group members staying on.
