The Royal Society of NSW organizes a number of events in Sydney throughout the year. These include Ordinary General Meetings (OGMs) held on the first Wednesday of the month (there is no meeting in January). Society business is conducted, new Fellows and Members are inducted, and reports from Council are given to the membership. This is followed by a talk and optional dinner. Drinks are served before the meeting. There is a small charge to attend the meeting and talk, and to cover refreshments. The dinner is a separate charge, and must be booked in advance. All OGMs are open to members of the public.
The first OGM in February has speakers drawn from the Royal Society Scholarship winners, and the December OGM hears from the winner of the Jak Kelly award, before an informal Christmas party. The April event is our black-tie Annual Dinner and Distinguished Fellow lecture.
Other events are held in collaboration with other groups, including:
