Amy and I will be wishing us well from afar as we will both be in Europe at the time of this event. Some folks have joked that as I am one of this year’s 16 judges I needed to ‘leave the country’ before the announcements. Not so, I am disappointed to be missing sharing in this celebrations.
Tina, Christine and Ana look forward to welcoming you to this 3 September 2019 event as well as all of 5 of your Chapter Leads look forward to welcoming you to future Australian Women in Security Network (AWSN) events.
With thanks and kind regards, Chris
