13 June 2013: From Humble Beginnings - 150 years of the National Portrait Gallery, Angela Cox
The lecture will be preceded by the society AGM and followed by the AGM lunch. Members can obtain tickets for the lunch from Maureen de Viell. Closing date 1 June
Marilyn Baker is our Programme Secretary
The role of the Programme Secretary is to select the monthly lectures to run from October to June in each society year. The range of available topics and lecturers is vast and NADFAS have created a directory to assist with this. All lecturers are vetted and all assessed by NADFAS members.
As this is my first year on the committee and lecturers are booked well in advance, the programme for this year has been organised by our previous Programme Secretary, Betty Clement. We have a varied selection of first-class lecturers and the topics are very stimulating. It should be a good year. I look forward to being part of the team and to organising the programme in future years.
Suggestions from members for subjects or speakers are always welcome and I will do my best to include them in our future programmes.
Lectures are held in Matthews Hall, Topsham, on the second Thursday of each month from October to June, starting at 10.45am.
Coffee is served between 10.15 and 10.40am
Visitors and guests are welcome by prior contact with the membership secretary. Please see the Joining ExeDFAS page.
