Next Year’s Committee!

o As Brainwaves is a branch of the British Science Association, and has excellent links with many important bodies in the science community, being on the committee is a brilliant stepping stone to anything you want to do after finishing university.
o We will be opening nominations for committee very soon, for the AGM on 26th April so get thinking about what you would like to run for!
o The role descriptions will be available shortly, so look out for this!
