AWSN Networking Event - 20th December
Blackbird Cafe, Darling Harbour.
We understand that this is a busy time of year, but we'd love to get together one last time for 2016. This should be an excellent opportunity to network with likeminded professionals, discuss highlights from the year and turn our minds to plans for 2017.
Please RSVP to [email protected] December so that we're able to make appropriate accommodations with the venue.
Hope to see you there!
