September 2019 Newsletter

For the next academic year we will again be meeting at 2pm on the second floor of Senate House in Malet Street, round the corner from Birkbeck. We will be using a couple of rooms (see 2019-2020 programme tab) and the meetings will be followed by a wine or soft drink reception to provide an opportunity for informal discussion. I hope you will be able to stay and enjoy this part of the programme.

The Committee has started work on updating our website to make it more interesting and accessible. Please let us have any comments you may have.

You will all be happy to know that Emeritus Professor Warren Chernaik has agreed to continue as our President in 2019 – 2020, and that he will be giving a lecture in March. You will also be pleased to know that we are again keeping the membership fee at £20 a year and the visitor’s fee likewise at £5 per talk. I am sure you will agree that this continues to represent excellent value for money.

For those of you who were not able to attend any or all of our meetings during the 2018/19 academic year, full details are available on the previous talks tab.
