BASES Conference Planning Group

17th October 2021

Further to the call for expressions ofinterest to join the BASES Conference Planning Group, we are delighted to announce that the following members have been appointed to the Group from November 2021:

Dr Daniel Bailey, Dr Lindsay Bottoms FBASES, Dr Tracy Donachie and Dr Adam Grainger FBASES.

Prof John Saxton FBASES, current Chair of the Conference Planning Group said, “The BASES Annual Conference is our flagship event. Each year, the Conference Planning Group works hard to develop a cutting-edge programme, which includes a range of excellent speakers, so that the conference delivers world-leading scientific and applied content across the broad spectrum of the sport and exercise sciences. Prof Craig Twist FBASES, Prof Lars McNaughton FBASES, Dr Stuart Beattie FBASES and myself, whose current tenures conclude after this year’s event, have enjoyed working with Dr Ian Taylor, Prof Mike Duncan FBASES, and Assoc Prof Lance Doggart FBASES over the last few conferences and we all hope BASES’ members will enjoy this year’s virtual conference which is taking place on 16 - 18 November 2021.”

John’s successor, incoming Chair of the Conference Planning Group, Dr Ian Taylor said, “We are delighted to welcome Dan, Lindsay, Tracy and Adam to the Conference Planning Group, all of whom will bring great experience to the role and Group. The new appointments will begin from late autumn and we will convene the first meeting of the new Group in November, to plan for the 2022 Conference. All things being safe next year, we hope to come together at the King Power Stadium, Leicester on 15 and 16 November 2022, where we plan to continue to deliver a world class conference for our members.”
