Dear BERGers

I am delighted to say that I have just been informed that my application to the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) to continue to support our BERG meetings has been successful. Hurrah!

If you are not already a member please consider joining UFAW (http://www.ufaw.org.uk/ ). It is still only £5 for students (£10 others) without access to their journal, Animal Welfare.  By joining UFAW you can help make real, practical and lasting advances to animal welfare throughout the world - for companion animals, farm animals, animals used in research, captive wild animals and those living in the wild that are affected by human activities. Please do join to thank them for their continued support of us in BERG and to enhance animal welfare.

We are looking for people to volunteer for BERG meeting slots for this semester.

The first meeting is on Wednesday 18th September at 5.30pm in 3A94 (Psychology common room). We shall use this meeting for introductions and updates from the summer...please come prepared to share news of any grants awarded, papers published, exciting conferences attended etc.

I have set up a Doodle sign-up, so just fill it out one date to indicate the week that you would like to present.  ONE person per week, please.

Presenting at BERG is an excellent way to practice talks, hone your presentation skills, get feedback on grant application ideas, lead a discussion of a research paper  etc.

The sign up is here: http://www.doodle.com/93cv8gw4gfddvu2p

When you sign up for a slot, please send me a brief title BEFORE Friday 13h September so I can circulate the programme in advance.

If you have new students who might wish to be on the BERG mailing list, please send them this e-mail. To sign up to the BERG mailing list new folk must complete the form available here:
