BIDP email address

We appear to have a spam gremlin causing blocking of our normal email address bidp at mega dot bw. We are attempting to sort this out in cooperation with our service provider, Mega Internet.

To deal with the blockage, we have opened an alternative account at Protonmail, and can now be reached at: bidp at protonmail dot com

This will be used by the executive secretary for sending and receiving until further notice.

We aim to hold a seminar on 29th (all day) and 30th November (morning) 2018 as noted above. It is open to all and offers ARC CPD points.
