New members gather

THERE'S A meeting for members new to London Freelance Branch - whether new to the NUJ or new to freelancing - on Thursday 27 October at - provisionally 6pm.

New members meet

A 2019 pre-covid New Members' Meeting

These meetings are a chance to get acquainted with other new members and to meet members of the LFB Committee, including some more experienced freelance journalists who can offer advice.

We email an invitation to everyone who's joined the branch in the last year. We also welcome NUJ members who missed earlier invitations or simply have a query with which the freelances assembled onscreen may be able to help. Anyone who wants to come should email membership co-secretary Mel Lambert at and he'll respond in due course. Please give Mel plenty of notice, as he's currently in a very different time zone to London.

An invitation – with the Zoom passwords - in the unlikely event that the meeting's still a "Zoomer" – will be emailed to members who have recently joined the Branch.

For updates on the format of the meeting – and the meeting's venue if it indeed has a face-to-face element – see

New Members' Meetings are held on the last Thursday of every third month.
