Coronavirus/Covid 19 update:

It is with regret that we have had to postpone the BAAL TEASIG 2020 conference. We have acted in accordance with British government advice to avoid large gatherings, and we do not wish to place any of our attendees at risk.


We anticipate holding the conference later in 2020 and are currently aiming at September as the new conference date.
