While social distancing remains in place due to Covid-19, SOC Council has decided that all face-to-face indoor branch meetings should be postponed until at least the end of 2020 when the situation will be reviewed. This is in order to ensure the safety of our members and speakers.
However, we are pleased to announce that the branch will be running some virtual meetings, via Zoom, and we hope that you will be able to join us.
An invitation with a link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out a few days before the event via email. To receive this notice, please ensure that you are on the appropriate mailing list held by HQ. If you are unsure, you can check your mailing list preferences by emailing Kathryn Cox or if you know you do not receive branch notices but would like to, you can sign up here.

Highland branch talks are normally held on Tuesdays, but while Covid-19 restrictions remain, the branch will hold virtual meetings in conjunction with Caithness and Orkney branches, who normally meet on Wednesdays and Thursdays respectively. Meetings will therefore be held on varying days of the week until indoor sessions resume.
