It was great to see Caren Rangi FCA named as Hawke’s Bay Leader of the Year at the 2017 Pan Pac Hawke’s Bay Chamber of Commerce business awards, a very worthy recipient and acknowledgement of the amazing leadership Caren displays.

The conversations about AML continue to gather momentum and it was encouraging to hear many members partaking in the complimentary webinar series.  It is great to be able to provide these members with information and provide details to the upcoming webinar series.
