Current Meetings

Annual Alliance Meeting (4-5 December 2018)

The International Alliance holds the Annual Alliance Meeting to provide a forum for member associations to meet and share advances in supporting people living with ALS/MND. It is an excellent opportunity for representatives of ALS/MND associations to discuss organisational development and planning, patient care, and funding, as well as the role and activities of the International Alliance and its Board of Directors.

As an addendum to the Alliance Meeting, we invite the host association to organise a free, open Ask The Experts event, which allows local people living with ALS/MND and their carers attend an afternoon of presentations by ALS/MND experts and then participate in a question and answer session. Ask The Experts takes places on the afternoon of the second day of the Alliance Meeting.

Registration is not yet open.

Allied Professionals Forum (6 December 2018)

The International Alliance also holds the annual Allied Professionals Forum. The APF functions as an educational and training forum for healthcare professionals who work with ALS/MND. This forum offers health care providers from around the world an opportunity to share ideas on good practice in the daily management of people with ALS/MND. Every year, this meeting is generously supported by The ALS Hope Foundation.

Registration is not yet open.

International Symposium on ALS/MND (7-9 December 2018)

Both the Annual Alliance Meeting and the APF coincide with the International Symposium on ALS/MND, an annual event organised by our colleagues at the MND Association of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Symposium is the single largest medical and scientific conference on ALS/MND.

Registration is not yet open.
