What are Regional Hubs?

ASET Regional Hub meetings came about in response to suggestions from you, our members, who wanted to meet to share thoughts and hear about work taking place at HEPs local to them. Regional Hubs are free of charge to ASET members.

In normal times we aim to meet in person, and plan to do so again in 2021, as soon as we are able. In the meantime we will continue to meet online via Zoom.

Face to Face events:

  • Aim to meet 3 times a year,  in September (at our annual conference), at the end of term in December, and during the Easter holiday in March/April
  • Are 2 hours in duration (10-12am or 2-4pm)
  • Facilitate focussed discussions on a current topic relevant to our field – video introduction from ASET supplied
  • Enable local networking to take place (outside of our conference and staff development workshops)
  • Are free of charge to our members (each HEP may send up to 2 members of staff)
  • Give opportunities to improve the links between individual members/local HEPs
  • Can lead to the production of new ASET Viewpoints
  • Hub events are supported by ASET with a trustee or member of the ASET Staff team in attendance at each event

Which Regional Hub do I belong to?

We have broadly split the UK into 5 regions as follows:

  • Scotland and Ireland

How do I host a Regional Hub meeting?

Regional hub meetings are normally 2 hours in duration, either mornings (10-12) or afternoons (2-4).  If you would like to host a Regional Hub event for your region and have a venue which could comfortably accommodate between 25-50 people, and can provide teas/coffees, please contact us. Host institutions are allocated up to 5 free places for these events.
