Grass Roots Scheme

Rather than take up needless pages by repeating the happy message of Grass Roots, which has appeared in every Gazette since I have been Chair, I will simply summarise by saying that if you are eligible under the scheme you may be able to claim moneys towards your attendance at any non BCA congress. To find out more please refer to the February Gazette, alternatively please do not hesitate to call me or email.

However, before I close, those of you who attended the AGM will be aware that I mentioned the Grass Roots Policy is presently under review, as due to the current rules of the policy, this year our two top players are eligible to claim under the scheme. This is something that will be addressed at the next Committee Meeting and I will feedback any decisions made in my August report.
