Regional-Rural Members' Forum - March / April 2017

by Susanna Richardson | Feb 23, 2017
Starting in March, VHIA will recommence regular Regional / Rural Members’ Forums. 

Previously, these forums have been a valuable opportunity for us not only to engage with and update members, but to hear directly from Regional / Rural members about the key issues affecting them. 

We anticipate that these will be conducted in March and September each year.
