Leadership for Global Citizenship

This year, our Annual Conference will be a blended programme with both BELMAS and the Commonwealth Council for Educational Administration and Management (CCEAM). Delegates attending will enjoy a comprehensive choice of papers from authors presented in a variety of formats together with opportunities for informal engagement with others bringing a diverse range of experience from researchers and senior educational leaders . Other programme features will include the opportunity to meet the editors of our flagship journals ‘Educational Management Administration and Leadership’ (EMAL) and ‘Management in Education’ (MiE), engaging discussions with leading figures in the educational leadership field in an informal setting and opportunities for networking which are the hallmark of BELMAS conferences.

Delegates will enjoy a high standard of comfort in accommodation, good food and complimentary refreshments throughout each day and a gala dinner on Saturday 9th July.

Those unable to attend will be able to access some of the programme highlights through our virtual platform.


The conference theme is “Leadership for Global Citizenship” and this year’s keynotes will be Professor Tony Bush and Dr Mere Berryman.
