Visit to Rothamsted Research and AGM

Rothamsted Research (est. 1843), is an independent scientific research institute with the longest running agricultural research centre in the world.

The meeting starts with the AGM. The AGM is open to all (only members may vote) and takes abour 30 minutes. We do urge you to attend so that you may participate in the election of your committee, whose main business is to organise branch meetings and represent members through the Branches Congress.

Volunteers for the committee are always welcome; if you would like to join, please get in touch with Mike Pickup, our Branch Secretary.

Nominations to the positions of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer should be with the Secretary 14 days ahead of the AGM; nominations for other positions and for those without portfolio may be made at any time before the close of the elections phase of the AGM. Some of our most effective volunteers have put their hands up at the very last minute.

After our AGM, Professor Chris Rawlings - Head of Computational & Systems Biology Department - will talk on the topic of Experimental Statistics and Computing. This will be followed by a tour of the facilities. After the tour there will be a discussion and an opportunity to network.
