Microbiology Society Roadshow 2019
As part of our commitment to developing, expanding and strengthening the vast networks and opportunities available to our members, the Microbiology Society is hosting a series of events led by President Professor Judith Armitage throughout the UK and Ireland during 2019.
Late summer/early autumn 2018, the Society conducted a membership survey giving members an opportunity to have their say about current services and benefits. One of the key themes to emerge from the survey was a desire from the membership for more local engagement. In addition, as Professor Judith Armitage embarks on the first year of her presidency, her aim is to meet as many members as possible and make sure the voice of the Microbiology Society is heard.
We have designed a series of events to reach the wider membership and bring members (and non-members) together on a local level. Attendees will be given a unique opportunity to engage in interactive discussions, find out how they can get more involved with Society activities, network, meet the new President, find out about our plans for our 75th Anniversary in 2020 and more. At each event, we will also have a topical discussion.
Please note: Each event will be tailored to meet the needs of the audience and so it is important to register in advance of the event.
