SPRING GALA DINNER
The Society’s main social activity of note each year is its annual gala dinner, usually held in early October.
Venues for the dinner are centrally located in Melbourne, and are always of the highest quality.
The dinners provide individual members the opportunity to meet other members, and corporate members are provided an ideal way of entertaining their clients and customers.
