Annual meeting and AGM 26-27 November

This year's annual meeting will be held at the Natural History Museum, London, with a day of talks on Saturday 26 November and access to the Diptera collection on Sunday 27 November.  This event is free and open to non-members, all you need to do is turn up!

Please access the museum via the staff entrance on Exhibition Road and sign in as a visitor at the reception desk.  From there you will be directed to the Neil Chalmers Suite (Saturday) or Angela Marmont Centre (Sunday).
There will be a prize for the best Diptera exhibit, so if you have something to display please bring it along on Saturday.  Pemberley Books will also be in attendance.

If you would like to join us for the Dipterists Supper on Saturday evening please contact Duncan Sivell (d.sivell@nhm.ac.uk) in advance of the meeting or early on Saturday morning.  We will be dining in a local Italian restaurant.
