Annual General Meeting and Showcase of the Society's Achievements

The Society holds an Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Showcase of the Society's Achievements event each year at Charles Darwin House, London.

The 2018 AGM will take place on Thursday 6 September.

The Society’s principal goal over the last six months has been to develop, expand and strengthen the networks available to our members so that they can generate new knowledge about microbes and ensure that it is shared with other communities. The first six months of the strategy has shown a positive increase in member engagement through social media, and an increase in our number of Champions.

Please see below for the day’s full schedule.
