The Area Team is there to support local Societies. The Area Chairman and her team arrange two Area Meetings per year where representatives of local Societies may air their views and concerns. The Area Trainer arranges Training and Information Days for committee members where participants have the opportunity to network with members from other Societies. The Area Co-ordinator for Education runs study courses designed to complement the programmes of local Societies.
