A message from the SCTE President regarding COVID-19

anthony bashamI wanted to send a message of support to all our members at this difficult time as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) impact worldwide. Our members around the world are always at the forefront of our thoughts, and now more than ever. Because of the current situation in which we find ourselves, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone all Society events until further notice. This includes the Society’s 75th Anniversary Annual Gala Awards Dinner at the Tower of London in June, which has now been postponed to 26 June 2021, and its Summer Lecture in July at Mercedes-Benz World. We will also take a view, in the next two months, on our Autumn Lecture and AGM (7 October) in London and keep you updated.
