    AGM members meeting

    Members at the recent AGM

    Guild vice chairman Sascha Meding has worked with our Regional Officers and other members to put together a programme of meetings in May.
    Not everyone can get to the AGM and some of you were beaten by “The beast from the east” this year.
    Now is your chance to meet up locally.

    • Find out news first hand
    • Meet old friends and make new contacts
    • Networking
    • Input to “The Big Questions” members survey (as promised at the AGM
    • Have your say, we want your feedback
    • Exchange information, ideas, tools? Learn stuff? – it’s up to you

    Many thanks to all the Regional Officers and members who go out of their way to make these events possible.

    You can just show up but it would be great if you could contact the host to let them know you are coming.

    You can attend any meeting you wish and more than one meeting if you wish.  If there is no meeting in your area and you’d like to host one, please contact Sascha Meding to find out what’s involved –
