CHANGE OF VENUE FOR ADDRESSES
NOTE: Due to the current security levels throughout Defence, we have moved venues. As of August 2017, we will hold our talks at ANZAC House. 4 Collins St, Melbourne. This will eliminate the need for security passes etc. However, we do ask that you advise of your proposed attendance so we can both set up enough seating and also for catering purposes. Please advise the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on 03 9282 5918 no later than 24 hours previous.
