General Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 2:00pm, feature an invited speaker, and cover a diverse range of topics as you can see from the programme below. They are invariably well attended as members know that they can look forward to an entertaining, as well as interesting, afternoon.

Meetings are normally held at Broadway Baptist Church, Broadway, Chesham but please note that from May to October 2022, meetings will be in the Council Chamber in Chesham Town Hall.

The June General Meeting each year is preceded by our Annual General Meeting, where the Committee reports to the members and Committee Members are elected or re-elected.
