RA Fellows Multi State Luncheon (Perth)
21/03/2017 10:00 to 21/03/2017 11:30
Venue: Aurecon, 5/863 Hay Street
The multi-state lunches are open to all Fellows, past and present. While this event is being hosted in Perth, each state holds its own lunch at an Aurecon office, and we engage with other states via video-conference. All Fellows have the opportunity to hear from the speaker and ask questions, while engaging with Fellows in their home states. As this is a multi-state event - please note below the time of the event in your location.
The RA Fellowship chapter aims to build leadership capacity in three areas:
1. Personal leadership
2. Organisational leadership
3. Industry leadership
The lunches, which are free for all Fellows past and present, focus on our organisational leadership pillar. We have identified some key topics of interest to Fellows, however please think of some questions you may wish to ask on the day.
