We regret to announce that, in view of the latest situation with the worldwide Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and in the interests of the health and safety of our members, we have decided to cancel the Society's Spring Lecture Meeting on Tuesday 24 March 2020 at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, UK.
I 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 which will now be held on 7 July 2021 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.
New appointments to the SCTE (Society for Broadband Professionals) were recently confirmed at the SCTE’s November Executive Committee meeting in Watford, UK. The SCTE is pleased to welcome Anthony Basham (Chair of the SCTE Training Committee) as its new President, with Mike Thornton taking the role of Vice President of the Society. Paul Broadhurst was appointed as Treasurer of the Society.
This year’s SCTE Spring Lecture will take place on Tuesday 24 March 2020 at the National Conference Centre (National Motorcycle Museum) in Solihull (near the NEC in Birmingham, UK). The Spring Lecture will be centred on fibre market trends, visual and audio smart assistants, network power and wireless technologies. Lunch is free for SCTE members, and free entry is also offered to the National Motorcyle Museum.
In 2020, the SCTE will celebrate its 75th anniversary! As well as producing a celebratory A4 publication (circa 32 pages), detailing the history of the SCTE throughout its 75-year history, the SCTE Annual Gala Awards Dinner will return to the prestigious venue of the Tower of London on 20 June 2020.
