These meetings are open to all APL members inc APL Designers, APL Professional Gardeners and APL Associates. They are also open to non-members, but non-members are allowed to attend  a max of 2 meetings. Further meetings as a non-member are at the groups discretion. Some of these meetings are combined with SGD groups around the country, these are excellent opportunities for contractors to meet designers.

These meetings are open to members only.

APL Cluster meetings have been very popular in the way they enable members to share best practice and industry issues in an informal yet structured fashion. APL Associates and suppliers are invited, but these evenings are not opportunities to provide sales pitches, unless the group requests it. However new suppliers to the group are able to give a 5 minute introduction and overview of their company,  product/products and input in to the discussions are welcomed and valued.

Attendees are taken from current lists of members and companies that enquired for membership. If neither of these are in your category the email Phil Tremayne phil.tremayne@hta.org.uk to be added to the area/areas you wish to follow.

All meetings will start at 6.45pm unless otherwise stated. All will be held in venues that provide food and drink at the members expense (Generally public houses) and all usually finish no later than 10pm.

Each meeting group will be notified at least two weeks ahead of the date of the venue and the topic of the meeting, plus there will be promotions on website and social media.

If a date is in your calendar but you have not received an official invite from Phil Tremayne then assume the meeting will NOT be taking place

If meetings need to be postponed/cancelled every effort will be made to do  this at least 4 days before the evening and attendees will be notified.

The APL cluster groups form the very basis of the APL Community that has been built over the last 6 years. If you haven’t attended one then make 2019 your year. You will be welcomed and I guarantee you will come away with one great nugget of information. We are trying to spread the network, but I know we won’t please everyone. But please contact Phil Tremayne phil.tremayne@hta.org.uk if you want a meeting in your area and are sure there will be enough people to attend (Min 6).

I look forward to seeing as many of you as I can in 2019 at the clusters. Your Meetings for Your Association #WeAreAPL
