BWARS AGM and Members’ weekend 2017

Saturday & Sunday 21 & 22 October 2017

Secretary: Catherine M. Jones (catherinemjones7@gmail.com)

 

The BWARS Committee invite all our members to join us at the World Museum Liverpool on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd October for the BWARS AGM and member’s weekend.

The BWARS members’ weekend is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and it is mainly informal and informative, with the official business conducted on Sunday morning at the AGM.

On Saturday there will be a number of workshops for members - from beginners and improvers to the more experienced. The number of workshops places is limited by the space allocated to us, and the number of microscopes available, so please book early.

At the AGM, on Sunday morning, the Officers of the Committee will give reports covering the past year, the state of membership and the finances of the Society, and the members present will elect new officers. If there is any business that you would like to raise at the AGM, please contact the Secretary by 21st September, to allow time for them to be included in the agenda.

On Sunday afternoon there will be a variety of presentations and a members’ photograph (perhaps even short video) section. Please contact the Secretary if you have any photographs (or short video) - either for assistance with identification, or showing interesting species or behaviour – that you would like to show.

To book a place at the BWARS AGM and Members’ weekend, please email the Secretary advising whether you would like to attend the workshops on Saturday 21st October, and/or the AGM and presentations on Sunday 22nd October and/or the evening meal on Saturday 21st October.

Please note:

  • Early booking is recommended for the workshops, as places are limited.
  • We will make a group booking for the meal but this is paid for on an individual basis.
  • You are responsible for finding your own accommodation.

As soon as the programme has been finalised it will be announced on the BWARS website.

This will be my first visit to the World Museum Liverpool and I am looking forward to seeing all the members in Liverpool.

The BWARS Committee look forward to seeing you at the World Museum Liverpool on 21st October and 22nd October for a great weekend.
