Seminar 2024

Seminar is just a few months, well 5 months away and your BDEIG Board and Seminar Committee are hard at work attempting to make it a great one.  As we let you know in previous messages we needed 50 registrations to make an in person seminar a reality.  Unfortunately we did not meet our objective and so we will be having an on-line Seminar for 2024.

Those few who did register and pay a deposit or in full will be fully refunded.  A new Seminar book and registration forms etc will be created and sent out as soon as possible.  There is much work to be done to identify the teachers and classes to be taught via Zoom.

Please be patient, you will get more information as it becomes available.

Should you have any questions or ideas/suggestions please contact me or Sue via e-mail.

While the seminar committee is working on 2024 the facility team is working on finding us a location for 2025 so everyone is quite busy working on your behalf.
