Networking sessions 2017


Our meetings for 2017 will be held in a new venue (across the road from our office) in the Brisbane Square Library. The Community Meeting Room is accessible, has a hearing loop, and is larger than our training room. We’ll keep numbers to 25 to see how it works. So we’ll be interested in your feedback on this new venue.
