Society Meetings

LMS Society Meetings

The LMS runs an annual programme of Society Meetings, including the three regional meetings (Midlands, Northern, South West and South Wales), the Society Meeting held at the annual BMC and the General Meetings held in London. The Society, Lectures and Meetings Committee oversees the meetings, with the exception of the Mary Cartwright Lecture, for which the Women in Mathematics Committee selects the speakers.

Formal business of the Society takes place at the beginning of the meeting, including the opportunity for members to sign the Members' Book, which has been in use since 1865.

Members and non members are welcome to attend the meetings.
