The BIG Executive Committee are following the COVID-19 situation closely and are following Government advice on mass gatherings and social distancing.
In light of current events, bookings for the BIG Event in July and any forthcoming Skills Days are currently SUSPENDED.
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 have decided to roll over BIG membership, free-of-charge, for all of our current Members for 12 months. Alternatively, if you were meant to be a Speaker at the 2020 BIG Event in Cardiff and decide to deliver your session as an online offer, you will be given a free 12 month membership. However, if you are not currently a BIG Member you ca still purchase BIG Membership for the cost of £30.
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 you Membership fee, or even make a one-off donation, your support would be much appreciated so that we can support our community over the nest 12 months and beyond.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
