Workshop Sessions with LMCs
9 September 2019:

The input from LMCs over the last 12 months has been invaluable to GPDF. It has allowed us to listen to your views, inform Board decisions and help us to direct our activity and focus.

While we continue to act and progress our change agenda, we wish to continue collaboration with LMC Office Bearers and Officers, and we will be holding a further series of Workshop discussions and consultation in September this year.
