The Area Chairman and her team arrange two Area Meetings each year, in March and October. These bring together the Society Chairmen and representatives from all 15 societies and provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and to benefit from the experiences of other societies.

One or more guest speakers are invited, as well as a Trustee from The Arts Society House. This is an excellent forum for representatives of local societies to hear first-hand about new Arts Society initiatives and strategies, to ask questions and to express their views and concerns.

The Chairman, Treasurer and Volunteer Representatives from the Chiltern Hills Area committee give reports to the meeting, and Society Chairmen have the opportunity to raise any questions.

The Area Chairman also holds an annual informal coffee morning for the society Chairs, which is a useful opportunity for free discussion about any topic they wish to raise.
