Conventions

For the first time in several years, we will be running two streams at convention. One focussed on branches and the other on specialist groups. These two types of member group are quite distinct from each other and deserve some time of focus.

Branches convention
7 July at 14:00 – 16:00, repeated at 18:00 – 20:00

Specialist Groups convention
9 July at 14:00 – 16:00, repeated at 18:00 – 20:00

As the event is taking place online, we do not have a capacity limit, and therefore we do not need to limit attendance to a specific number of committee members. This is a good chance for committee members who have not attended a convention in the past to participate in and meet other volunteers and members of the staff team.

Both conventions (and sessions) will feature a keynote presentation from Rebecca George, BCS President, as well as interactive sessions between volunteers.

Pre-convention online discussions

Before conventions, we are holding online meet-ups for volunteers to discuss and share their experiences of the pandemic and how they are getting on during these ‘unprecedented’ times. These discussions will help to feed into the agenda for the conventions.

18 June (1-2pm & 6-7pm)

23 June (6-7pm)

30 June (1-2pm & 6-7pm)
