IFUT Annual Delegate Conference (ADC) - 14 May 2022

As Public Health guidelines have now been relaxed we are delighted that the IFUT ADC 2022 will be a face-to-face Conference, to be held in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin, on Saturday 14 May 2022.  

The Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Simon Harris, has been invited to address Conference.

IFUT are delighted to announce that Professor Andrea Pető, Professor in the Department of Gender Studies at Central European University, Vienna Austria and a Doctor of Science of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, has agreed to attend our Conference as a guest speaker.  Academic Freedom is a core value for IFUT, so any threat to it is a core concern.  In Andrea Pető, our 2022 ADC will have the rare privilege of listening to someone who, working in Hungary, has had personal experience of fighting for Academic Freedom under oppressive regimes of both the Soviet-style Left and, more recently, the nationalist Right.  Her insights and good-humoured tips may well prove useful even in our own less extreme situations - as well as helping us to detect any larger threats in a timely fashion.

18 March 2022 is the final date for the General Secretary to receive Motions on Policy and he would be very pleased to receive any such motions prior to this date.  The Preliminary Notice has issued to all members and further documentation and information on the Conference will issue in due course.

We would encourage members to attend and participate at our ADC.  The ADC is the main decision making body of IFUT and informs the work that IFUT carry out throughout the year.  Attendance at the ADC may be arranged via your local IFUT Branch representatives, who carry out the registration arrangements for Branch delegations.  

Most importantly, remember that each and every member of IFUT is a recruiter.  Do ask colleagues if they are an IFUT member.  If they are not they can easily join IFUT by clicking on this link
