Calendar

ACTSMS Meetings & Events

The committee has put considerable thought and effort into our activities calendar and will be presenting a great range of workshops, feedback sessions, guest speakers and Peoples Choice sessions throughout the year. To help you plan your diary, we offer the following calendar which clearly lays out what you can expect at our monthly meetings; like all things, this template will evolve over time and feedback is definitely welcomed.

Regular club meetings are held at the Hellenic Club – Woden and commence at 7:30 PM. Please Note however that some meetings will be held at the Hellenic Club in Civic… (the old RSL Club building in Moore St). Check meeting listings below for details.
