2020 Irish Autumn Meeting
This year's Autumn Meeting and AGM took place on Saturday, 26 September. It was held fully online for the first time due to restrictions around Covid-19, but was still a great event. The agenda for the meeting can be viewed here.
The meeting began with a welcome from BSBI President Lynne Farrell. This was followed by a series of talks covering Atlas 2020 (Robert Northridge), the National Plant Monitoring Scheme in Northern Ireland (Abbie Maiden), the Rare Plant Monitoring Scheme run by the National Biodiversity Data Centre (Una Fitzpatrick), and the Irish Grasslands Project (Maria Long). All four talks from the meeting can be viewed on the BSBI Ireland Autumn Meeting playlist.
We had a short break before the formal AGM, where Committee for Ireland Officers reported on the work of BSBI in Ireland this year, and new appointments to the Committee for Ireland were voted in. Papers from the AGM can be viewed by BSBI members on the password-protected Ireland Governance page.
