Voting closed for committee changes

Many thanks to all those who have voted in the committee elections this year. Voting is now closed and votes are being counted, and the new committee will be announced at the SLTB AGM on the 20th September and announced here shortly afterwards. 


A huge thanks also to all those who put themselves forward. It's encouraging that so many people wanted to be a part of the committee and we hope those who are not elected to named positions will still put their enthusiasm and energy to helping out over the coming years!

SLTB 2017 Final Programme (and last chance to vote!)

Dear Colleagues

We very much look forward to meeting you in Cambridge and your participation in the SLTB meeting. You will see from the final programme [click here] that we have a full and exciting two days scheduled.

Registration will be open from 08.45 on Tuesday morning in the Aurora Centre Foyer.  Where relevant, those who have yet to pay their registration can do so in cash at registration and will be provided with a receipt. The committee have agreed to accept either Euros or UK Pounds. Those of you who have been awarded an Audrey Smith Travel award will be paid in cash at the meeting.

Please also see attached choices for the dinner [here] and dessert [here]. You will be asked at registration to confirm your choice. Those who have not yet confirmed their attendance at the dinner can do so at registration. Please remember the costs of dinner have not been included in the meeting registration fee.

BAS is located on the edge of the city and may be a long walk from your accommodation. You should ask at your hotel about transport, but my advice is to use the “Park and Ride” bus service that goes from Central Cambridge bus station to a car park opposite to BAS. However, there are a range of options see

 Have a stress free and enjoyable journey.

 Best regards,

 John Day (On behalf of the organising committee)




As an additional reminder - voting has not yet closed for the new committee members so please examine the candidate CV's [here] and get your votes in as soon as possible!
