This year the society will be holding topical workshops for members and visitors prior to the meetings held on the evenings of the third Thursdays of the month.
Each month a topic has been chosen and a knowledgeable society member will speak in their field of expertise or interest about that topic with questions and discussions welcome. It is hoped that members or visitors can choose topics of interest to them or for which they’d like to learn about.
These workshops are held from 7pm to 7:30pm prior to the meeting commencing at 7:45pm (visitors also welcome). Following the meeting is a chat and supper. Below is a list of these topics and dates. These are subject to change and confirmation should be sought by checking the meeting agenda or contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
