CHOG Online

CHOG Online provides CHOG members with a growing library of online resources, that they can refer to at any time and read and listen to online. There are more than 295 items published to date. [If you are not yet a member of CHOG and would like to trial CHOG Online click here.]

Some of the items may complement or expand on articles that appear in the annual report, or relate to events organised by the CHOG Committee. But it is intended that over time, most content will be made up of contributions by the wider CHOG membership. Currently, members’ contributions make up 54% of the published items.

The content has been structured so that it can be accessed in a number of different ways – either by date of posting (most recent first), or by topic, or by type (e.g. video recordings). A summary of the topics available on CHOG Online can be viewed here: CHOG Online Topics. Take a look – if there’s something you’d be interested in learning more about, then join CHOG to get access!
