BAA AGM – Recording on our YouTube channel

We will be livestreaming our AGM on the BAA YouTube channel. Thank you to the IOP and Nick James for organising this. Please bear with us if there are any technical gremlins as this will be our first face-to-face meeting in over a year and a half and the IOP building has only reopened for events earlier this month.

The IOP have updated their guidance for attending the AGM, relaxing their requirements to reflect the position most public buildings are taking. Please see the AGM event page for full details. Attendees who have already booked will be emailed with the revised guidance on 18th October.

Booking has now opened for the BAA AGM on Saturday 23rd October 14:30-18:00 at the Institute of Physics Kings Cross building. Please note spaces are limited and the IOP will be livestreaming the event on the BAA YouTube channel for those who are not attending in person.

Due to the continued risk from COVID-19, you will need to book in advance to attend this meeting. Please familiarise yourself with the COVID infection control measures required by the IOP, details on the booking page below.

The IOP Kings Cross building is opening to events in October and we are grateful to them for giving us the opportunity to hold our AGM in person.
