Membership and meetings

Update on Covid-19 – 12 January 2021

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. As we now find ourselves in the latest lockdown it is clear that any form of face to face meetings are unlikely to occur in the next few months. Hopefully with the benefit of the new vaccines a return to some face to face meetings are at least within sight. Until then we will maintain our online approach.
