The HTPAA thanks the Whitehorse City Council for its generous donation in subsidising the cost of the General Meeting Venue.

There is generally a presentation on the chosen topic by a member of guest speaker. Upcoming speakers are listed in the HTPAA Calendar when arrangements have been finalized.
Recent meetings included a talk on Aboriginal Tools and Miniature Carvings. The September meeting is traditionally reserved for members' Show & Tell session.
Each meeting we have a "Whatsits" session, where members bring along strange and unknown objects / tools for possible identification by those present.

The HTPAA Library is available to members at general meetings.

We also swap and sell tools, exchange advice and ideas, and display recent acquisitions. The extensive HTPAA Library is available for loans to members during general meetings.

Visitors are always welcome.
