Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School, Crosby, Liverpool – Wednesday 15 March 2017

Twenty members joined us at Merchant Taylors' Girls' School for a lively discussion which included Data Protection rules coming into force in 2018, engaging with recent leavers and the southern bias of AROPS membership.

The first North Region meeting was held on 20 June 2013 at Pocklington School, York and including a lively debate on such topics as data protection, constitutions and committees and friend-raising versus fund-raising.
