The Mid-Chilterns CAMRA committee is a group of voluntary officials who meet once a month to ensure that beer, cider, perry and pubs are promoted and protected in the local area.
Committee meetings are just a small part of the branch’s social calendar, and are open to all unless explicitily stated otherwise (some meetings may be closed to committee only, for sensitive subjects such as award nominations).
Meetings are held once a month (usually every first Wednesday) to discuss ongoing campaign objectives, as well as news from local pubs and breweries. Traditionally meetings take place in one of the branch’s many pubs, followed by social drinking time with a beer or two.
