Members’ Meetings

Meetings for members are held on a regular basis in the National Information Centre in Treoir. Usually a speaker gives a short input on a current issue (for example, Children and Family Relationships Act, Adoption Bill, social welfare changes etc.) and members have the opportunity of discussing the intricacies of these issues. These meetings are free and take place at lunch-time or tea-time with light refreshments provided. The meetings give members an opportunity to share their work experience and to discuss issues and service developments.
