NEW PREMISES FOR SOCIETY HQ

The Society offices moved in May to a new location in north Bristol. The new office building – named Starling House – is larger to accommodate the expanding activities of the Society and particularly its trading subsidiary, Bioscientifica, within publishing, events and association management. The move represents an exciting new phase for the SfE Group in the development of the organisation. While our email and phone contact details remain the same, please note our new postal address: Society For Endocrinology, Starling House, 1600 Bristol Parkway North, Bristol BS34 8YU.

HELP DRIVE ENDOCRINOLOGY FORWARD

Make your nominations now to fill vacancies for Endocrine Network convenors, which will arise at the end of 2018. The Endocrine Networks each provide a dedicated forum in a major area of endocrinology and enable members with similar interests to come together, share best practice and ideas, and actively promote collaboration with other learned organisations, thereby increasing the profile of endocrinology as a specialty. If you would like a turn in the driving seat, full details and a nomination form are at www.endocrinology.org/membership/endocrine-networks.

MAKE YOUR MEDAL NOMINATIONS SOON
