The BIG Executive Committee are following the COVID-19 situation closely and are following Government advice on mass gatherings and social distancing.
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, 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 have also been given a free 12 month membership. However, if you are not currently a BIG Member you can still purchase BIG Membership for the cost of £30 and view selected session recordings from the 2020 Online BIG Event.
However, 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.
