Members benefit from priority booking for social events and for travel. We arrange two dinners per year,
one at Christmas and one at the end of season in May, one long trip of several days duration usually in April
and, again this year as last, several day trips. We hold a light-hearted 'arts' quiz once a year.
In recent years the long trips have been to Toledo, Madrid, Salamanca, Santiago de Compostela, Morocco, and Barcelona;
most recently, a group went to Elche, Valencia and Cartegena.
Members have the opportunity to meet and share experiences. Many of our members have made
good friends through contact with others at events and indeed at lectures.
We try to create opportunities for members to get to know each other.
Members may attend all lectures in our main programme with no further charge.
There are eight lectures in our main programme. Speakers are selected by our Programme Secretary
and the Nerja DFAS committee from a panel of several hundred potential speakers maintained by NADFAS in London.
While their background varies considerably, all speakers have a respected expertise in their subject and are
good communicators. We arrange their flights from UK, local accommodation and pay them a significant fee to
reflect the quality of the lecture. So our lectures are to a high standard, both authoritative and
entertaining, by a well established lecturer. Lectures of this quality are not easily available.
Members may attend all lectures in our extra programme with no further charge. These lectures or
events are arranged generally using a local speaker, and the topic is usually one of local interest.
Normally we arrange three extra lectures in the season.
At € 45, membership is outstanding value for money.
