There is an increasing awareness in the general market around the role of associations in relation to the conduct of the professionals who fall within their ambit.

This should therefore an important item on the association board’s agenda. This webinar will focus on the keys issues the leadership should focus on in relation to protecting the interest of the public and provide some tips on cost effective measures.
