2020 Meetings of the Society

Virtual Meetings

new As ordinary meetings of the Society are cancelled until further notice, we have held virtual meetings of members using Zoom. The first was at 9am on Saturday 30 May and 36 people took part including several members from New Zealand. A second virtual meeting was held on Saturday 27 June and a third on Saturday 25 July. The time has been changed to 9pm so that members in both New Zealand and the USA can take part. The fourth meeting was on Friday 25 September at 9pm.

The next meeting is the AGM which will be on Zoom on Saturday 28 November at 11am. A further Zoom virtual meeting of members will take place on Saturday 19 December at 9pm; it will have a Christmas theme.

The format for both the the May and June meetings was that members were requested to submit a jpeg of their favourite page from their collection and, at the meeting each was displayed in turn and the member spoke about it for up to five minutes. Members could then ask questions. The title for the July meeting was The Committee Entertains and consisted of PowerPoint presentations on 7 topics. while the September meeting had PowerPoint presentations from 6 members.

The presentations at the meetings are available here in a password protected folder whose user name and password has been sent to all members.
