The ethos of the Society is that it should be run by the members for the members. But to enable this, annually we elect a number of officers who form the committee.

Officers for 2020/21

Neil Havard – Coordinator

Unlike many societies we don’t have a Chairman or President, but a Coordinator – to help facilitate the work of the Society. The Coordinator does many of the tasks, though, that a chairman or president would in other clubs.

Malcolm Mitchell – Membership Secretary

Contact Malcolm if you are interested in joining the Society, or, if you are a member, if you wish to pay or have any query over your subscription.

Rachel Coburn – Events Organiser

Rachel organises the speakers for our monthly meetings. If you would like to give a talk to the society, please get in touch with her. There are many opportunities for members to give talks if they wish. Either as the main speaker, in the second half for shorter items, and at our summer Members’ night, or December Christmas meeting.
