Coronavirus and LRTA meetings
The well-being and security of our members and supporters is a priority for the Association and with this in mind the LRTA is following advice from the National Governments within the UK . Some physical meetings are now being held by some Local Areas whilst others continue with online meetings; see the list below for details. Functional Groups are holding their meetings online only or as hybrid physical/online meetings.

Members are encouraged to keep in touch and engage via our discussion groups. There is an ongoing review of the situation as Government advice is revised.

Members’ online meetings
All LRTA Members are welcome to join the Members’ online meetings that are being hosted on the Zoom platform and organised centrally. For further details of these talks and how to register, go to the Members’ Online Meetings page for details and bookings.
