Local Group News
Welcome to the Local Groups News Page. Here is where we keep you updated with special events and information regarding local groups. Of course we can't do so unless you let us know what is happening.
Unfortunately there isn't space to list your programme of events (send news and programmes of events to firstname.lastname@example.org to have them published in the AA's events calender) but if your group is holding a special event, has changed venue, contact details or even website details then we can inform the astrological community here.
Contact Christine Chalkin with any items you would like us to include on this page.
Important news for all local groups
The arrangements for the Annual Conference of the Astrological Association are well underway! The AA's 49th annual conference 'The Importance of Astrology' will take place from 8th - 10th September 2017 at Wyboston Lakes, near Cambridge.We are once more offering a special discount to all local group members. When three or more members book and come to conference together they will each receive a 15% discount from the conference price. Book before 30th April and you'll also get the £50 Early bird discount! Each participant must be an AA member; please check the AA website for membership options. This is a wonderful opportunity for friends to travel to Wyboston together and to be a part of the astrological community. Come and mingle with other astrologers, hear fantastic speakers from all over the world, enjoy 4* accommodation, good food, Saturday night grand dinner and disco and of course loads of fun! Welcome meetings are arranged during the weekend for local groups and all new conference participants.
Local group leaders can you please inform your group members about this amazing offer as soon as possible.
Reminder about AA event days:
After the success of the astrology workshop in Edinburgh last year, we have arranged another workshop event with the Scottish Astrological Association for June 2017. Would your group like to hold an event in conjunction with the Astrological Association? We can help your group with funding for speakers, advertising and promotion. Please contact me for more details.Best regards
Coordinator for local groups
Free Web Space for Local Groups
The Astrological Association is now offering a free web page to local groups, including a Googlemap of your group's location. (This is a service we are offering to members only.)
If your group would like a page, please contact the webmaster.
We have produced a couple of leaflets that we hope local groups may find useful. One outlines the many ways the Astrological Association help promote local groups, the other offers advice for those wishing to start a local group. They are available here in pdf format for download.
