Any Principal Member who is not able to attend the briefing is welcome to pass the invitation to a colleague who is able to represent their firm.

Attendees at the annual general meeting will earn 1 CPD point. If you are able to attend, please email NIBA Events Manager, Arianne Bath: abath@niba.com.au
