usually this would be a time when many of you travel to the ESB congress or have arrived already and start enjoying the local atmosphere and meeting your friends and colleagues.
Whilst we cannot offer that face-to-face experience in 2020, you know well that the ESB award sessions consistently showcase fantastic work. The ESB 2020 sessions (13th and 14th of July) bring these highlights online, and through registering for these you can engage in the discussions and enjoy at least some sense of (online) community from anywhere in the world!
If you want to learn more about the ESB2021 and hear about key developments in the society don’t miss the important announcement session on Tuesday afternoon. Whilst we do not have a formal General Assembly this year, in that final online session you will find out who was voted into the new council. And if you have not yet used your vote, there is still time to do so until Monday night. This is the final call!
More details on registering for the ESB2020 online sessions and instructions on how to vote are provided below.
We are looking very much forward to seeing and hearing from you soon!
