BSA regional forums allow its members to network, to discuss both local and national issues about boarding. At each forum a BSA staff member briefs delegates on developments in the boarding sector. These meetings also provide members an opportunity to share best practice. BSA forums are open to all boarding staff and the mixture of attendees usually makes for even more interesting discussions
