Briefing Meetings take place four times a year.
We usually have one or two invited speakers to introduce a specific topic of current concern,
followed by questions, discussion and contributions from members.
Meetings start at 2·0pm (please aim to arrive by 1·45pm) and finish by 4·15pm.
This is an open invitation.
Venue for ordinary meetings:
The Library, Archbishop's House, 150 St George's Road, London SE1
Please notify Philip Walters if you intend to attend.

|As usual after the presentations by our speakers there will be time for responses, questions and contributions from members; and of course if any member has something of importance to say on any other subject we will try to provide a space. If anyone would like to speak for a few minutes on a particular subject at the Briefing Meeting, please let Keith Jenkins know as soon as possible in advance.|
