Taking the chair from Dr Richard Miles, the new President opened the first meeting of the 118th Session and expressed his honour at having been elected to the post. Mrs Hazel Collett, Meetings Secretary, was invited to read the minutes of the final meeting of the previous Session, which were approved by the audience and duly signed. The President announced that 60 new members were proposed for election, and, in keeping with tradition, announced that their names would be displayed in the Association's Office. He noted, however, that the Office was currently closed for the duration of its move back into Burlington House. The election of the 82 new members who had been proposed at the previous meeting was put to members, and they were approved and declared duly elected. The President invited any new members present to introduce themselves at the end of the evening.

Mr Nick James, Papers Secretary, reported that three papers had been approved for publication in the Journal:
