The latest news from the BGA.
The BGA relies on the work of volunteers and the committee needs the help of more BGA members. Each year three members are elected to serve on the executive committee for three years and the search is on for new candidates. If you fit the description of “enthusiastic people who are keen to contribute toward our vibrant association” then you could be just what we need. Nominations are required by 7 April for election at the AGM in June 2014. Please use the Nomination Form or get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
