The New Members' gathering in July

Shown here is a recent and successful new members' meeting at the end of July. Six new members came, as well as two non-members looking to join. Four old hands from the Committee were on hand to share knowledge and experience: the conversation was seen as inspiring and useful. New members asked for information about the NUJ Fees Guide, the Rate for the Job and freelance contracts.
