A Birthday gift for the Royal Society’s 199th anniversary

Royal Society of NSWAs you know, next Saturday 27 June is the 199th birthday of the Royal Society of NSW, and to mark this special event we are having a virtual Annual Dinner with Nobel Laureate, Professor Brian Schmidt, giving the Distinguished Fellows Lecture. I do hope you are planning to attend this special occasion.

We are also suggesting that you might like to send the Society a birthday present to mark its extraordinary 199-year achievement. We are inviting all Members, Fellows and friends to support our Library and expand its digital collections. As you know, we have begun to record and curate our lectures and events for posterity, but we are currently reliant on sub-professional equipment. Our priority now is to buy video/audio recording, streaming and editing equipment—cameras, microphones, video switching equipment, editing software, etc. in order to continue our online presence into the future.

.Help us to enable the Society to build on what it has learnt during these unprecedented COVID times and continue to provide quality online services as we transition to a future that combines face-to-face and online events. Your special birthday gift of $199 or more would go a long way towards achieving this goal.
