The meeting is not of a technical nature. However arrangements are changed at the last minute, so if you are not on the discussion group mail out, please call Jill Abbott (0400 921 374) to check that arrangements are still current if you plan to attend.
All members are very welcome - don’t be put off thinking it will be technical.
