The IHBC is continually exploring new support for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) at our Annual Schools – they are ‘Schools’ after all – and for 2018 members can now also prepare better for studies, talks, visits and networking by using our web guidance and links on the Belfast School site, especially for the Day School speakers and tours on the Thursday and the Saturday.
