Venue: Conference call


The section AGM will be held to handle committee elections, discuss the past year and make plans for the next year. It is an open invitation to all members to attend and existing Committee members are asked to be present.

It has been an interesting year and we’d like your input on how to further the BCS Section in the USA.

We would also ask that you to complete the Nominations form and return to BCSSection@bcs.org.uk. If the form has been removed by your email system, let me know and I’ll find another way to get it to you.
