The “Mad Hatters” will again be visiting the pub this evening with one or more of their favourite hats.
TOPIC FOR DISCUSSION TONIGHT … “The future of the aIVC Reciprocal Membership Scheme”
Tonight there will be the chance to discuss the future of the “AIVC Reciprocal Membership Scheme” and what it means for members in a time of pandemic lockdown. And following on from this, how do we want to further develop co-operation between members and clubs in the future as the Covid-19 lockdown starts to lift.
The topic discussion session will be recorded so that the results can be included in the aIVC Conference report by Bob Clifford as aIVC Webmaster and made available to clubs that wish to view the debate.

IN THIS PUB NIGHT …
I hope we can discuss ideas for clubs to organise or participate in on-line like pub quizzes and discussing online talks etc. Hopefully we can find some imaginative ways of breaking the monotony of being told to stay indoors for a substantial period. We can even organise some real life get togethers when the restrictions relax for a while … within whatever guidelines apply at the time of course.
