Dial in:     
You must dial in - we do NOT dial you.

Phone number only in email.

Speaking time:     
We want many voices to be heard. If you are a member listed to speak below, the chair will probably expect you to take no more than about 5 minutes on presentation so there is plenty of time for others to respond.
Special Guest Speakers are invited to speak for 10-15 minutes, then field questions.

Tony Maxwell, whose mother passed away age 94. Our condolences to Tony. Tony Sheehan. Paul Hobson.

Late starters:     
Maybe you haven't had access to the agenda or you have late breaking news you would like to share. Tell the chairman here at the beginning of the meeting that you would like to speak, and he will fit you in probably later, perhaps right now if that suits. 

Jumbo's story:     
Member Jumbo Partridge's story began 15 years ago during a return visit to his home in Britain, when he started going to the loo a lot. Jumbo, a well organised man with good documentation of his whole health history from the beginning, will share his story with us.

Special expert guest speaker Bridget Kehoe:     
We all know that eating well - eating more of the things that are good for you, and fewer of the things that are not - will help you live longer. But you may not know that with prostate cancer different foods are good for you at different stages of your disease.

Bridget is an expert in this area. At the Cancer Council she specializes in giving nutritional advice to people with cancer who call the helpline. Today she will help us understand this very important part of our wellbeing.

Other updates:     
Any man who wishes to update us on his progress is welcome to contribute here.

Formal end:     
Bruce Kynaston will have to vacate the chair early today. Nev Black, as Relieving Chair will declare the formal part of the teleconference closed at his discretion, perhaps around 11am. The teleconference lines will be kept open until at least 11:30 for anyone who wishes to continue discussions, update his health, or just chat. 

Informal chat:     
Any topic you like -  topics we didn't reach, something discussed earlier you wish to comment on, an update on your health, how your new boat is going, moaning about the weather, anything that you wish to say. 

Future phone-in support group meetings:     
Teleconference meetings are held on the fourth Friday (NOT always the last Friday) of each month (except January, which is one week late) and December (which is one week early). So February may have 2 teleconferences - the delayed January teleconference, and the normal fourth week. In 2013 this means teleconferences on both 1 February and 22 February.

Phone-in support group meeting dates 2013
1 February 2013 
22 February 2013
22 March 2013 (not last Friday in month)
26 April 2013
24 May 2013 (not last Friday in month)
28 June 2013
