Area Team

There are currently 24 Societies in The Arts Society Sussex Area. For further details about them visit the Societies section.

The Area Team is there to support local Societies. The Area Chairman and his team arrange two Area Meetings per year where representatives of local Societies may air their views and concerns. The Area Trainer arranges Training and Information Days for committee members where participants have the opportunity to network with members from other Societies. The Area Co-ordinator for Education runs study courses designed to complement the programmes of local Societies.
