The AGM is your opportunity to hear a review of the Society’s work during the past year, examine the financial details of the Society and assist in the election of the Society’s Council.
The Council is in as healthy a state as I’ve seen it in recent years with a few great members offering themselves to serve and being co-opted onto Council over the year. The Council boasts an impressive group of individuals of varying talents which promises to continue to meet the Objects of The Society.
There are still several vacancies on Council and at this time poses a great opportunity to get more involved; if you are interested in being involved please contact a member of council for more information or complete a nomination form. Being a member of the BSF Council is both rewarding and greatly valued. Council members can be reimbursed for out of pocket expenses incurred on Council duty.
Nominations are sought from the membership for general positions on the Council in Vice President, Fellow, Associate and Affiliate grades of membership.
We are always looking for guest speakers to address the membership with talks which are relevant to our Industry if you know of anyone willing to give a talk/lecture please let the Council know.
