What’s On


The ECC runs three types of meetings:

1) Member’s meetings – which are generally held in London on Saturdays – we aim to Zoom these and add the recordings onto the member’s section of the ECC website. These are open to members only.

2) Open Zoom meetings – which are available to members and non-members alike. These tend to be on the last Thursday of the month, and start at 6pm. These Zoom meetings do not happen every month, so there are gaps in the programme. The link is circulated about a week in advance.

3) Seminars – open to members and non-members who pay the attendance fee – with members receiving a discounted rate.

If you would like to receive invites to all meetings, the simplest way is to join the ECC. Alternatively, send your email address to the Membership Secretary, [email protected]
