We exist to support you, our members, and you have told us that what you need most is to keep learning and sharing experiences and best practice.

With this in mind, as well as our fortnightly members' meetings, we hold regular Special Interest Group meetings on the subjects you've told us you need to know more about.

These meetings have an expert presenter and plenty of opportunities for questions and discussion. They are free and always over subscribed but priority booking is given to members - you can find out when future meetings are being held in our members' newsletter which goes out every two weeks, and on follow up posts on twitter and facebook. 

Please note, as a member you can attend all our meetings for free. If you are a non-member we welcome you to join us for the first session but would ask that you take out membership after this.
