Start Time

6:45  The doors will open. Members are welcome to join in setting up.
7:00 to 7:45  Social time / Library   This longer period gives members a chance to visit the library, sign up for programs, or just circulate and socialize. 
7:45  The library will close for the evening and a brief business meeting will be held. 
8:00 to 10:00    Immediately upon conclusion of the business meeting, approximately 15 minutes, the programme portion of the meeting will commence.
As the Guild has the premises until 10:00 pm, members are free to stay till then if they choose.

New Start Time

Over the past few months a number of members have mentioned the difficulties in cramming in all the activities on meeting night. Between trying to chat with fellow members, exchange library books, register for programs and workshops, participate in programme and hear the latest news from the executive, something was getting short shrift. To try and address these concerns we are trying out a new meeting format and start time.  We believe it will help all of us get even more out of our meetings, and even give our librarian and membership chair, a chance to participate in programme.
