Meetings and other Branch events

Monthly General Meetings and Speaker evenings

General meetings are usually held on the last Friday of every month. Notice of an upcoming meeting and the proposed speaker presentation will be emailed to you. You can also view the schedule and details on this website. Please note: the venue does change.

The general format of each meeting is an informal gathering of drinks from 6.00pm-6.30pm, General Branch Meeting 6.30pm-7.00pm, Dinner 7.00pm-8.00pm, Guest Speaker 8.00pm-9.00pm. Quality food and wine is served prior to the guest speaker. Members are encouraged to advise the Executive Committee of items they would like to discuss in General Business before the meeting, rather than on the night.

The next Branch General Meeting will be held on Friday 30th October 2020 in Cambridge(Karapiro) at The Boatshed. The guest speaker will be Andrew Quick speaking on ‘Houston, we have a problem… Unexpected orthodontic problems and their implications’.

Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting is the last meeting of the year and includes the Executive changeover. In 2020 the AGM will be held at the conclusion of the November 27th Day Course (see below)

Annual Day Course

The Branch runs a Day Course usually held in May. Any profit from the Day Course is used to subsidise our General Branch Meetings so that members can enjoy listening to quality speakers at appealing venues. In 2020 the Branch was to be hosting a Day Course on Friday 8th May “Focus on Oral Cancer”. This particular Day Course was cancelled due to COVID-19.
November 2020 Day Course:
Is being held at Zealong Tea Estate, Hamilton on Friday 27th November 2020
