What's Happening at IMC? - 2021 November Edition

As we near the end of 2021 and the Festive Season is in sight, we hope that, despite all the curve balls, overall it has been a good year for you. Here’s what IMC has scheduled to round out the year for you … 


Recordings of the 2021 National IMC Symposium 'Collaborating for Success' held on Friday 15 October will soon be available!

If you didn’t get to register, have no fear! The beauty of an online event means that you will still be able to register and access the recordings and slides of all sessions. We will send notification out soon when this access is available.

Here are a few comments from participants who attended …

“Super enjoyable session with great insights!”
