The Oxford postcode area has more ACCU members than any other single postcode area. It seemed a pity to me that there was no local group, so a select group met for the inaugural meeting on 25/6/08.
Meetings are held on Wednesdays, usually (but not exclusively) the last Wednesday of the month. Meeting start at 8pm and run until 9:30pm. After which we usually adjourn for a drink and post-meeting discussion.
ACCU Oxford now has its own mailing list. Subscribe via the web page.
To post to the list, email
email@example.com. To keep spam volumes down, posts from non-members will be held for moderation.
The list is intended to be low volume, primarily for meeting announcements and other administrivia.
For details and to signup see MeetUp.
