We're closing our LinkedIn Group

The time has come, especially in light of the Voller High Court decision, to keep our social media in one place on LinkedIn.
That place is our LinkedIn company page:
If you aren’t already following our company page, please come and join us before next Monday (25 October) when we will be shutting this LinkedIn group down.

We regularly share information about our seminars, membership offers and articles of interest on the CLA page.

Happy 1st Birthday to our Queensland branch!

There can't have been a harder time to bring people together, but our Queensland committee not only tried but succeeded. Congratulations! (Don't give in to the temptation of too much cake. Who needs more lockdown kilos? One slice will do.)
