17 January meeting: Hot Potatoes (open mike session). Come along and speak your mind!

Once again, we are opening the floor at our January meeting to all of our members. Anyone can speak for 5 minutes (absolute maximum 10 minutes) on a topic of their own choice that is in some way related to humanism. It can be a personal account or an objective review. The idea is that you talk about something that interests you, and you interest us!  You can use PowerPoint if you wish, but that is not essential. Please email the chairman with the title of your planned talk to prevent duplication.

Thursday 17  January at 7.30 pm, University Centre Shrewsbury, Guildhall, Frankwell Quay, Shrewsbury SY3 8HQ. All welcome. A voluntary contribution is requested for room hire and refreshments.

You are very welcome to come for tea and coffee from 7 pm to meet and chat with other members and guests.

Meeting on 21 May: tell us what’s on your mind

Hot Potato IssuesIs an issue bothering you that humanists ought to be concerned with?

Members and non-members are invited to propose topics that humanists might be particularly interested in for short discussions. You may particularly wish to raise an issue that doesn’t get aired often in the media or that many people don’t know about.

The format will probably comprise 3 to 4 separate issues, with no more than 5 minutes introduction by the proposer and a maximum of 20 minutes open discussion.

Please send a short title for your topic to the Secretary in advance of the meeting.

Topics could be chosen for a full meeting next year, or a campaign that SHG could support.

The meeting is at 7.30 pm at The Lantern, Meadow Farm Drive, Shrewsbury SY1 4NG. All are welcome. Donations are requested to cover the cost of room hire, refreshments etc.
