ZOOM MEETINGS

We hope to bring a meeting every month. Half of these should be at times suitable for USA/Canada and half to suit Australia/New Zealand. We expect each to last 60-90 minutes. To join a meeting please send an email to zoom@dgfhs.org.uk with your details including Location and Membership Number. If you do not have your membership number then please email either the UK Membership Secretary at mbrs-sec-uk@dgfhs.org.uk or the Overseas Membership Secretary at mbrs-sec-os@dgfhs.org.uk who will be able to provide it to you. Please include any question you may have to enable us to prepare an answer. Written questions will take precedence.
