Mates

Mates

  • In a small profession like ours the CMGS membership will become your mates!

  • In a profession like ours they may be the only mates you can get!

  • Some of my best friends are molecular geneticists…….


Ask not what your society can do for you ask what you can do for your society

Ask not what your society can do for you, ask what you can do for your society

  • The CMGS can only voice the thoughts and concerns of its members if it knows what those are.

  • Take part, get involved, make your views known, stand for election.

  • MTOs need to take part to have a voice.

  • We need new blood in all areas of the CMGS
