Registration is now open to join us for our 2020 National Update Meeting, which will be held via Zoom on Friday 27th November 2020 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm.

Due to the unique situation we find ourselves in, unfortunately we are unable to meet and network in person as we would have planned. Instead, we hope this virtual meeting will still give you an opportunity to network and be more accessible, especially to those who perhaps haven’t been able to join us in previous years.

We have some essential sessions designed to ensure that you are keeping abreast of national issues, as well as helping you to develop your own personal practice to the maximum potential.
