Due to reaching the maximum number of delegates we can easily accommodate, registration for the BIG Event 2014 is now CLOSED.
We are inviting current members of BIG to stand for a position on the 2014/15 Executive Committee.
ANY member can apply for ANY position on the Committee and no prior experience of Committee or Board work is required. It's always helpful to have a cross-representation of the entire membership on the Committee so we actively encourage applications from freelancers, science festivals, science centres, academic institutions, zoos, museums, funding and research bodies etc.
We are a friendly bunch, we meet about 4 times a year somewhere central to all committee members (for which your expenses will be covered) and you'll be fully supported in your role by BIG's Administrator. You will receive a cost-only place at the BIG Event 2015 (currently £70).
We are looking to fill all roles but in particular we are looking for a new Secretary and Treasurer as our current committee members are standing down this year.
All positions will be subject to an online vote and the results will be revealed at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Oxford on July 24th (you do not need to be present).
To find out more about the positions, you can visit this page - or you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an informal and confidential chat.
Nominations are to be received by 10am on 17th July by downloading the form here.
Steve Crabtree, Editor of BBC Horizon is announced as Keynote Speaker for the BIG Event in Oxford next month. Steve took the position of Editor of Horizon at the BBC this year, so he probably knows a thing or two about creating ways to engage folks with current and relevant science. And he knows how to paint a submarine.
