Meetings include paper readings and poster sessions, discussion forums, workshops on specialist topics and visits to research establishments. Young members are particularly encouraged to contribute.

The Garrett Lecture was inaugurated in 1993, and is to be given at a meeting each year by a plant pathologist from overseas.
