February Meeting Scheduled

The next whitegoods meeting has been scheduled for February 29th 2008 to be held at the Millers Hotel in Sibson once more. Of course the meeting is open to non-members as well as members to attend and entrance is free, so you can attend easily.

We are looking forward to some new product introductions, news on what the TA has been up to over the past few months and how it is progressing forward. We will have some update on taking the COP forward and working with the OFT to improve standards as well as updates on technical information and what we are doing about it.

As usual we expect it to be a very interesting day for all who attend.
