2020-05-11 2020-05-12 Sydney

The impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on organisations across all sectors has been immediate and extraordinary. 

Our immediate task is to step up and efficiently deliver the information, resources and the most effective discussion forums to best support you — our members and the broader governance and risk management community — as you respond to this evolving crisis.  

With this in mind, we invite you to join our first-ever Virtual Governance and Risk Management Forum.  

Drawing on the style and format of our original state-based forum, this two-day online event offers you an accessible platform to join a highly relevant and information-rich forum from the comfort of your home.  

Agility. Resilience. Impact.
