Sector Discussions and Networking

Thursday 8 October 2020 (18:00)


Opportunities for professional networking and in-depth discussion with peers have been in short supply this year. In order to fill this gap, our Sector Heads have kindly stepped forward to offer you the chance to meet virtually.


We look forward to welcoming you to the first of what we hope will be a series of themed discussion evenings. Following a welcome from the Association’s President, Francois Aguerre, the groups will run concurrently, so please choose the ticket for the group you wish to join.
