Around 140 people made up the audience to hear Newcastle Institute Patron Ross Gittins open this year’s speaking program at Souths Newcastle on 14 March.
Entry to this event for the first time included an online registration and payment option as well as our traditional donation request at the door. Our active committee has this year decided that we will make Annual Memberships available for the Newcastle Institute and so far over fifty people have taken up the opportunity to become members. As well as being entitled to free entry to all events, members also have access to a Members’ online space where additional readings are available and opportunities exist for members to be part of discussions about sessions and planning for the Newcastle Institute.
It’s easy to become a member; just look for the big green ‘Join Now’ button on the right and click to begin the process.
Coming up next month we’re looking forward to hearing from the new head of the Port of Newcastle; Professor Roy Green. Given some of the recent discussion around the future of the Port of Newcastle and its potential diversification, this should be an excellent event.
