CSES is looking for a new Secretary

CSES is looking for a new Secretary

From Roger Pittock, our current Secretary

After much soul-searching, and having now had the honour and pleasure of serving 10 years in post, I am not seeking re-election as CSES Secretary. I am looking forward to continuing to support your Society from the Council, but not from the post of Secretary.

I am truly grateful to members for their support over the last 10 years, and I have learned a tremendous amount while in office. The position and experience opened many opportunities during my career.

Please consider putting yourself forward for this role. The time commitment is not that high overall, but comes in bursts. A brief overview follows.

The Internet: is it Still Good For Us?

The Internet: is it Still Good For Us?

My Smarter Essex, Tue 15 Oct 2019 16:00-19:30, The College at Braintree

My Smarter Essex is returning to Braintree, with a second run of "The Internet: is it Good For Us?" which was last held at Anglia Ruskin University in November 2018. We are now taking bookings for this event.

We know that some students and schools were unable to make the previous event so this is an excellent opportunity to take part. The Braintree location is also intended to ease travel for schools based towards the north of Essex.

Sticking to the new format trialled previously, this session will interactively examine how data, connectivity and artificial intelligence will influence our health.

See the event page for more details.

We have limited spaces for attendees and places must be booked in advance, please contact us to book. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
