Since its founding, the Society has hosted many major speakers at the annual Winston Churchill lecture series, including Margaret Thatcher while she was still serving Prime Minister. Speakers also came from the other side of the political spectrum including Neil Kinnock, former Labour Party leader and European Commissioner, and Roy (Lord) Jenkins, senior cabinet member, European Commissioner, Chancellor of Oxford University and biographer of Winston Churchill.
Six of the members present put their names forward and were elected as a new Transitional Council, which is made up as follows
- Chris Atkinson, Vice-President, Luxembourgish and British
- Jan Könighaus, Vice-President, Luxembourgish and German
- Hervé Hansen, Secretary, Luxembourgish
- Tom Nguyen, Treasurer, British
- Jacques Loesch, Member of the Council, Luxembourgish
While former activities - the Winston Churchill Lectures, English classes and trips to the UK should be maintained - new fields of activity will be developed. In particular, the Society should promote cultural and social activities in Luxembourg, either by initiating its own events or by supporting events run by other societies in Luxembourg.
A second EGM was held on 5 February 2018 to consider the Statutes (Articles of Association). Although 50 members were present, a quorum was not reached to be able to update the statutes. Another EGM is being scheduled for Sunday 4 March 2018, immediately before the society's Annual General Meeting (AGM) at 1600 at the British Ambassador's residence.
