CAS Member Meetings open to the public

Our member meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the University of Canterbury. We are currently hosted in Room 701 West (see the red dot on the map below). If you are interested in membership, this is a good place to start and you will be warmly invited to attend - just contact one of the committee members beforehand so that we know to expect you. Our meetings start at 7:30pm with a cup of tea and a social chat, before the main topic of the night begins at 8pm prompt. Members and visitors will be asked to sign a register of attendance. The subject matter will range from general appeal to all levels to scientific or data analysis. We will try, where appropriate to identify the level of the presentation on a traffic light basis.


GREEN - appeals to all

AMBER - a mixture of general appeal and scientific data

RED - scientific or data based presentation
