January - February 2018 e-newsletter

BGA January / February Newsletter
No description available

Dear BGA Member,

Flyers, booking arrangements and full details of all BGA events are available on the BGA website

Attending BGA Events in person: Please let us know if your commitments prevent you from attending an event for which you have previously registered so that a) someone else may do so and b) we have a full theatre.

Corporate Sponsorship for Networking after BGA Lectures in London: members tell us they value mixing with other industry professionals when attending lectures in person and the BGA have been fortunate to secure corporate sponsorship for the ICE Café Bar to be open after Lectures – please support this initiative and make the most of the facilities available.

Recordings of past events on ICE website: for the first three months access is restricted to ICE and Society members who will need their membership number to do so.

International events are not generally listed in this newsletter unless organised under the auspices of ISSMGE Technical committees or ISRM; members are directed to or BGA social media (Linked In, Twitter and Facebook) for full details.
