Membership and meetings

Update on Covid-19 – 6 October 2020

We anticipate that all industry fora that we host will remain online, until such time that all participants return to travelling normally across the UK. With the recent announcements from Government, it is unlikely that we will return to normal meetings for another 6 months. There may be some exceptions with small groups on a need basis.
