They are primarily about two things, Community and Communication.
The Club holds three National Club meetings per year where an average of around 200 Club members enjoy networking opportunities at each meeting. These Club meetings are free to attend for Gold and Platinum members.
They also hold regional meetings – our Business to Business forums – which offer a very successful format.
In addition, they hold their Annual Convention followed by our Night of Knights awards event in October that attracts a cross-section of around 400 delegates. The Convention is viewed as ‘the most significant industry event of the year’ by many industry professionals and again is free to attend for Gold and Platinum Club members.
