Section AGM and Chapter Chairs’ Hybrid Meeting – April 2022

After 2 years online, it was great to be back meeting in-person for the 2022 Annual General Meeting and Chapter Chairs’ Meeting.  The setting was Glasgow Caledonian University with the meeting held in a hybrid form, enabling those unable to travel to also join.

Both ExCOM and Chapter Chairs presented their activity during 2021 to the meeting as well as their plans for 2022.  Due to the pandemic, face-to-face meetings had been replaced by many online events which had been recorded and are available to watch again on the website, providing more opportunity for member engagement.

Many chapters reported that they were planning to return to face to face conferences, whilst maintaining an online presence through webinars.

The afternoon session began with an interesting and insightful talk by Mike Hinchey entitled “Building Resilient Space Exploration Missions”.
