Meetings in 2022
We are currently running online meetings for members starting at 7pm. Until we are able to hold face-to-face meetings again, all our events will be held on Zoom.
In 2022, our evening meetings will take place on the second Tuesday of the month. Our evening meetings start at 7pm. Please see the schedule for further details.
Each meeting will be chaired by one Committee member in rotation who will manage the meeting and keep it running to time. In addition, virtual meetings will be hosted on Zoom by another Committee member managing the technology.
Zoom meetings will be one hour. In-person meetings will be two hours, including judging a table show and a coffee/tea break.
