CIOL's annual Members' Day is the highlight of the membership year. It offers members and guests the opportunity to attend workshops and seminars delivered by presenters who are experts in their fields, to network and meet members of Council and staff over a buffet lunch and a drinks reception, and to hear the Threlford Lecture.
This year the day includes the AGM, starting at 9.30am and attendance is of course optional.
You may attend the AGM only, Members' Day only, or both.
