Members’ meetings

The SA Local Committee holds regular buy-your-own-lunch-and-beer meetings in Adelaide at 12.00 noon on the second Tuesday of each month, except in January (when everyone is on holiday) and during April and September 2018, when we hold our General Meetings (see below). The lunch meetings are held at the Metropolitan Hotel located on the corner of Grote and Pitt Streets, Adelaide.

Please join your Local Committee for a bite, but please let us know beforehand so that we know whether to book a small table or a large one. Send an email to or call James Vandenberg on phone 08 8242 1601.
