Over 450 members now on CAP Staff 1962-1987

Bob Brock reports:

"The membership of our LinkedIn group has continued to grow, and I'm pleased to announce that we have now passed the 450 mark. I'm in the process of setting up the annual gathering (pub night) in London for late November and will be sending details in a month or so, but it strikes me that it would be good to set a target to have passed the 500 mark by then. So if there are any old colleagues that you're in contact with, but haven't yet joined the group, please consider sending them a link to the LinkedIn site and inviting them to join. Maybe we'll see them in November!"
