IMA (UK) Constitutional Event

  • Threshold and Union House, 65-69 Shepherds Bush Green, London, W12 8TX (+ Google Map)
  • 11/11/2012
  • 11:00 - 16:30
Event summary:
The Iraqi Medical Association (UK) Executive Committee invites all current members to a completely FREE event!
More details:

Since the Executive Committee was elected in July 2011, it has worked hard for its members to further develop the IMA(UK), especially with relation to its Regional Branches. In April 2012, an interim committee was successfully launched in the North & Midlands, and in that time the IMA(UK) has had the opportunity to test its Regional Guidelines document published in December 2011. The Regional Guidelines document has been constantly changed modified and updated over the past 10 months, and its inclusion into the constitution is an important step in cementing into place the efforts made to develop the IMA(UK) into a national organisation that reaches out to members across the country.

On the 11th November 2012 all members are invited to a FREE event at the Iraqi Cultural Centre in London, where lunch and snacks will be provided by the IMA(UK). We will begin with a light hearted talk from a foundation doctor’s trip to Iraq, followed by an interesting talk about the history of medical terminology, and then ending with a review of NHS Pensions given by Medical Sickness.

The second part of the day will focus on a review of the Association’s constitution and suggested amendments. Changes to the constitution require the approval of members present at the meeting.

This event is a members-only event, if you are yet to become a member you may register today on the website by clicking the “Join IMA (UK)” link at the top of the page. It is only £30 for the year. Members benefit from reduced ticket prices at all our national and regional events, as well as the opportunity to elect their local and national representatives, have a say on how the organisation is run, including the right to vote on constitutional changes.

Please register your intention to attend to, this will help us plan how much food to prepare for the day, so please register in advance.

We look forward to welcoming all our members to the event, and look forward to having a lively discussion about how the organisation is going forwards.

Dr Ahmed Alshafi
IMA (UK) President
On behalf of the IMA (UK) Team
