The VPG

I'm working within VAT and would like to attend meetings to improve my knowledge and keep me up to date.

I've visited their site and read the Constitution but I'm not clear as to how it all works, mostly how much the annual cost is and how the meetings are structured.  Is it just like a meeting whereby members discuss pre-decided topics to clarify understanding (so in a way similar to what happens on these boards), or is there more to it than that?  I want to be fully prepared before I make any sort of move to join.

Also, am I reading the constitution correctly, does each member have to take their turn hosting a meeting?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

Excellent organisation

I've been a member for a good few years and have nothing but praise. Subs are about £240 if I recall.

The VPG is arranged in chapters (but don't worry, you don't have to wear a cut off denim jacket to belong) and each chapter is autonomous when it comes to meetings. The meetings take different forms but will sometimes be a talking shop, other times a guest speaker comes along.

The conference is a very good event (held mid June each year) and the membership is very varied (and noteworthy in some cases).

I'd recommend joining and think you'll be very impressed with what you get for the money.
