The LARSOA North East Region has successfully staged a series of road safety conferences
over the last 6 years in partnership with Government Office North East and other agencies.
This year, in agreement with LARSOA Officers, the regional conference will be launched as
the first LARSOA national conference. To mark the occasion, the conference will be a 2 day
event with a full conference dinner and evening entertainment.

Malcolm Burns, LARSOA National Chairman will open conference with a Keynote speech.

The themes this year are varied. As 2007/08 has seen much activity in the Partnership Grant
Scheme, Sandra Armstrong of DfT will open the first session and we will hear from other
speakers regarding the successes and possibly failures of some of the high profile
Partnership Grant projects that have come out of the scheme. The session will end with a
very lively and entertaining presentation around behavioural psychology.

The Corporate Manslaughter and Homicide Act which came into force on 6th April 2008 will
have major consequences for employers. They will need our help! This session will focus
on the Act and assist us in making decisions about how we as Road Safety Officers can
involve ourselves in the Driving on Business issue.

The LARSOA powered 2wmv advisors are staging the final session of conference to look at
the issues of motorcycle casualties. This will be a very enlightening and important session.

Nick Rawlings will give an update on the LARSOA Web and communications front and we
expect a very enlightening session on ‘Viral Marketing’ and the younger driver from ST16

Our celebration of the NEW LARSOA National Conference will centre on a night of music and
dance. Fantastic local musicians will entertain us with a mix of gentle ballads followed by
some great sounds of the 60’s 70’s 80’s 90’s and 00’s pop/rock dance music. Bring your
dancing shoes!

Finally, we wish to thank our sponsor, Arnold Clark Automobiles, for their strong
commitment to road safety and casualty reduction, and for assisting LARSOA NE to make
this year’s conference happen.

Alan Kennedy
