MS Teams meetings

While there’s nothing like face-to-face interaction, we’re having regular virtual meetings.


Photography and videography meetings

ACPME photographers and videographers have been meeting fortnightly on Wednesdays from 11:00–12:30.  Stephen McCann has been chairing these discussions inviting guests from the BIPP and relevant suppliers – including some that have offered extended free trials of equipment.

Managers’ only meetings

Difficult times mean difficult decisions. There’s a time for open forums, that include all staff, and a time for peer-to-peer discussions under ‘Chatham House’ rules.

If you’d like to talk ‘returns to work’ and ‘management strategy’, Lorna Mckanna-Maulkin will be chairing MS Teams discussions. If you’d like an invitation, email Lorna
