What a big year it has been! Thank you to all of those who have sent such encouraging and positive feedback as we celebrate last week’s events – the Annual General Meeting and the 2021 Grace Groom Memorial Oration featuring the Hon Julia Gillard AC – both at the National Gallery of Australia; plus the Members Policy Forum at Old Parliament House – it’s also a good time to reflect on 2021.
