2020 Webinar: Who is Your Community?
One of the important sessions from our planned in-person event, we look at who it is that societies serve (and is your society doing what it should be doing to serve those communities)? What is it that younger potential members want? (Is membership an anachronistic notion, or does it foster a sense of tribe and belonging?) We start of this session with each of our early careerist speakers talking briefly on what they would like to see from Learned Societies, and we will then enter into a wider conversation about what societies could be doing, with contributions from the audience.
