Annual Bat Workers Forum

Date and venue of next meeting: to be held online on 22nd September 1900 - 2030.

The Bat Workers Forum (BWF) is an annual meeting open to anyone interested in bats, regardless of experience.

The meeting will be chaired by a member of BCT's Board of Trustees and in attendance will be several members of BCT staff (including representatives from the National Bat Helpline and BCT's senior management team). Representatives of the UK’s Statutory Nature Conservation Agencies (SNCOs) are encouraged to attend, as are representatives from other organisations where appropriate.

The aims of the forum are to:

  • facilitate communication and the sharing of experience between all bat workers and those interested in bats, regardless of knowledge or experience
  • enable the concerns, views and opinions of bat workers, bat groups and anyone interested in bats to be shared and discussed and, where relevant, communicated through to BCT and SNCOs
  • enable feedback, from the relevant parties (e.g. BCT or SNCOs) on issues previously raised
  • a round up of major issues and/or highlights from attendees

For more information please see the full terms of reference and an example agenda.
