Our Adelaide team made personal calls to members in the Mt Gambier (and surrounds) area and a number then joined SA/NT Chair for an informal virtual chat the following week. This was followed by our annual Member Town Hall which saw around 50 members online for update from the SA/NT Council and Panel Chairs. We look forward to many more opportunities to connect with member throughout SA and NT for the rest of the year.
