Last year we celebrated the removal of the sunset provision on our independent accreditation legislation.

We’ll be giving an update on that as well as covering a number of topics yet to be announced. More details coming soon!
Please RSVP today using the contact form on our website or by replying to your email invitation! We can’t wait to see you!
