Meetings of the Society

From 16th July 2020, until further notice, the Society has resolved to go virtual with its members' meetings. The meetings will be run using Zoom web conferencing. All you need to do when the time comes is to use the link to Start Zoom as given below. Joining a meeting is a two stage process. The common link given below takes you to a registration page where you are asked to provide your name and email address. This is actually a registration for all our future talks. Once the next meeting has opened its doors the Registration page will include a new button to actually join the meeting. You do not have to have installed the Zoom product to do this, and a video-cam, while useful, is not a prerequisite to joining the meetings either.

To be sure that you are reminded of the meeting on the day of the meeting it is recommended that you send an email to the Secretary requesting that you receive invitations to each meeting until further notice.

On meeting days the meeting room will be open from 7:30 pm. Select the Start Zoom link as before, where the information you previously entered will be recalled, together with the link to actually join the meeting. Select that and you will be joined. The meeting proper will start at about 7:45 pm when the chairman will make any announcements, and take any general questions from members. The talk will begin at about 8:00 pm, and with questions is scheduled to last for one hour, after which the meeting will close. Enjoy it all from the comfort of your home. Non-members are welcome to our meetings.
