Members Day 2020

Find out what we have planned and how to register your interest to participate

Join us for Members Day Online 2020

This year NASS will be going virtual and delivering our first ever online Members Day and AGM on Saturday 13 June.

As in previous years, we will continue to update members on our current work and our long-term plans and give members the opportunity to ask questions on the year gone by and the future.  The event will also feature a special slot on motivation and the results of a NASS funded research project, as well as an introduction to somatics. We are pleased to present the opportunity to attend live, interactive breakout discussion sessions with top health professionals in the world of axial SpA (AS) and members of the NASS team.

I do hope that you decide to join us for this unique event as we continue to support our members in these challenging times.





Dr Dale Webb, Chief Executive, NASS


Members Day 2020

Due to the impact of the COVID19/Coronavirus on the UK and resulting government advice, NASS has taken the decision to cancel Members Day 2020 in Chester. For those of you in the North West, don’t worry, we will be holding Members Day 2021 in Chester.

This year we will have a series of shorter sessions as well as question and answers with some of the top professionals in the area of axial SpA (AS), and taster sessions in somatics and art therapy.
