The BIG Executive Committee are following the COVID-19 situation closely and are following Government advice on mass gatherings and social distancing.
It is likely that we will continue to deliver our events online for the foreseeable future to do our part to keep everyone safe. When it is safe and responsible for us to gather again, we will. But until that time, we thank you for your patience and understanding while we all adjust to life in a pandemic.
We are aware that a large number of our Members are freelancers, on zero-hours contracts or in other precarious situations, and that the current situation presents a challenge across the whole Sci Comm sector. With that in mind, in July 2020, the BIG Executive Committee decided to roll over BIG membership, free-of-charge, for all of our current Members for 12 months. Speakers in the 2020 Online BIG Event were also given a free 12 month membership.
If you are not currently a BIG Member, you can purchase BIG Membership for the cost of £30 and view all sessions recorded from the 2020 Online BIG Event.
BIG is a membership organisation that relies on membership fees and income from our events to cover our annual running costs and activities, so if you are in a situation where you are able to pay for your Membership fee, or even make a one-off donation, your support would be much appreciated so that we can support our community over the next 12 months and beyond.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
