Over the past few months some alumni have requested an opportunity to invite colleagues to our alumni sessions.  We have decided to make a limited number of places at this session for you to invite colleagues who may benefit from attending these session with you. Registrations for these places are at a cost of $20 and are ticketed as "non Alumni ticket". Whilst the number of these tickets is limited, more tickets may be released one week prior to the event if alumni places are not filled.

We look forward to receiving your registration and seeing you at the session.
