Booking onto events

Find an event by viewing our Events Calendar, instructions to book can be found on the individual pages. 


Please remember to add the date to your calendar once you are booked on.  Often our events are over-subscribed with a waiting list, we therefore ask you politely to advise us if you can no longer attend, so we can release your space to another member.

There is no limit to the number of events you attend.


AREF is not an accrediting body for CPD, however, we can collect details of AREF events you have attended for your records.  Please email us at [email protected].


AREF rely on the generosity of our members who regularly host events for us.  If your firm has hosting facilities and would be happy to help host an event then please contact Clare on [email protected].
