This is a free opportunity for you to be able to get to know other young members from other unions at a real lovely setting in Leicestershire and discuss how we can build our respective unions who are all affiliated to the GFTU, sharing best practice, and learning from each other, which surely will help Napo in return also. The weekend is free for Napo members up to the age of 40, with accommodation and meals included, you just need to check with your branch to reimburse you for your travel.
