Forum Meetings

We are currently running all our meetings online via Zoom but will return to ‘real’ meetings as soon as government guidelines allow. Maybe in the summer?

Forum meetings are open to everyone. Join in to hear an interesting presentation, ‘meet’ some new people and use the opportunity to find out more about the Forum. All meeting speakers start their presentations at 10:30am, unless otherwise stated. More information will be sent before each webinar so make sure your membership is up to date and that the office has your email address by emailing
