New members meet
There were 14 members new to freelancing or recently joining the NUJ at the Branch's New Members Meeting on 31 October - Halloween, also supposed to have been the day the UK left the EU. New members had questions about fees, invoicing, taxes, unpaid "work experience", pitching and negotiating. Six experienced members of the LFB Committee attended to give advice. We discussed the Freelance Directory (www.freelancedirectory.org) and opportunities for training.
The next New Members Meeting is due on Thursday 30 January 2020 from 6pm. It's at the Camera Museum, Museum Street, London WC1A 1LY (map). The nearest Tube is Holborn.
