The Institute holds six meetings a year, usually on the third Saturday of the month, in January, March, May, July, September and November. There is a charge of £5 for members and £10 for guests to cover the cost of the speaker, venue and refreshments (usually tea, coffee and homemade cake).
Most meetings take the form of workshops on a topic with an invited speaker. One or two meetings a year are held in the field. The AGM is held in January each year.
Meetings are held at a variety of locations. Many meetings are around the Midlands, where most members reside, with occasional meetings further afield to reduce travel distances for far-flung members. During Covid times, meetings have been held successfully on Zoom and this will no doubt continue in conjunction with physical meetings.
