The Society functions at different levels, depending upon the role that it plays in the various activities of it’s membership. These functions can, and do, alter with changing circumstances and the needs of individual members. Paramount is always to act as facilitators in providing the necessary information and support, as mediators if required to ensure the individual members best interests, as much as it is possible to do so, are protected.
It has also become a useful forum, where members meet on a regular basis, to air and share current issues and problems that affect them. Experience has shown that very often, what is perceived as a difficult or major problem, is easily resolved with the benefit of others having experienced similar. Open meetings for all members, by which is meant companies, are held four times a year, with an annual luncheon where members can also entertain their guests, being held in late summer/early autumn. This is usually held on or close to the River Thames, and open meetings on a moveable basis, but always easily accessible for all members.
