Continues to run well with 11 members plus 2 honorary members. We meet for lunch four times a year, members and guests, at Luton Hoo, which is a first class venue. We have a round table debate after lunch on a topical subject which has been well received in lieu of a speaker.
Lunches are paid for in advance. Branch maintains a positive bank account.
There is a range of disciplines and members work together on a regular basis. New members are being sought, two new members this year but balanced by two retiring.
Hertfordshire was represented at the RAC lunch and House of Commons. Herts also take a table at the annual visit to Parliament arranged by the Royal Town Planning Institute.

We have 36 members.
There remains a waiting list – mainly lawyers and we are concerned about furthering the imbalance of lawyers relative to other professions.
The 2015 Christmas event was another great success with a record attendance of 450. We were able to send Treats Childrens charity a cheque for £5000.
Regarding this years Christmas event, on Thursday 8th December, we anticipate a worsening of the now usual problem of there being more requests for tables than the venue can facilitate – and unfortunately there isn’t a larger venue in the vicinity.
Our first quarterly luncheon was well attended by 30+ (members and guests) after which we were provided with an excellent synopsis of the local activity at MIPM Cannes by John Forkin of Marketing Derby.
