|Merton Society meetings follow three simple traditions:
- Each meeting is announced ahead of time by a posted Bill of Affaires, which lists the schedule of lectures and other activities for the evening. For the more important meetings, an Invitation is often sent with the Bill of Affaires to members.
- At the beginning of the meeting, and upon entering the room, each member is announced by title by the designated Le Huissier Audiencier.
- Whisky, tea, and other libations are served in teacups, and they often are accompanied by cigars and other forms of epicurean indulgence.
