  • Circulate details of each meeting to those in the appropriate region around 10 to 14 days in advance and endeavour to encourage a good attendance
  • Discuss with those coming to meetings what they would like to see and how they would wish displays and presentations to be conducted
  • Ensure that the program is publicised as widely as possible

Please consider if you can fulfill the position for future meetings - contact Chris 0208 654 4159 or via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
