Comment from the President: A disappointing attendance from our members, with fifteen members plus invited guests. We are trying our best to attract good speakers to our meetings, but it is difficult to justify with low turnouts. Members’ suggestions around the content and format of meetings, to encourage more to attend, would be appreciated.
