East Midlands

The East Midlands group has been meeting irregularly at various locations and welcomes members from a wide area, including Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. After a couple of years of inactivity it has been reinvigorated thanks to the efforts of its new group leader. Contact John Silvester for further information.

The East Midlands group runs an email discussion forum that is open to all members of the Society.

Past meetings

Thursday 14 March 2019 at 12.30 p.m. at Phoenix Arts Centre cafe, 4 Midland Street, Leicester LE1 1TG

The Phoenix Arts Centre cafe/bar proved to be an ideal location for a relaxed indexing-related chat over lunch.  Five of us, ranging from almost-retired to newly qualified, enjoyed the good food and discussion ranged widely, covering, amongst other issues, computer replacement, taxation, marketing, CPD, repagination and (inevitably) unreasonable client demands. We agreed that Leicester is convenient for everyone and that we would try the museum next time.

Thursday 15 November 2018 at 12 p.m

The reconstituted group held a successful first meeting in the cafe of John Lewis in Nottingham on 15 November, when four people were in attendance. In addition to discussing a range of indexing-related issues, it was agreed that Leicester would be a more convenient location for the next meeting in March 2019.
