“The group is a way of sharing experiences and gaining understanding of the challenges industry faces as a whole. Networking is important and it can help ground us in the realities we each face in our particular sectors. The updates we receive are helpful to allow us to plan ahead on legal and compliance issues that will impact our day to day work”
