Evening Event for Board, TC, UC and Staff Location: Café Del Mar on Sunday, November 5 after the Board Meeting for food, drinks, and beautiful harbour views! Plus ones are welcome! Please RSVP for 2 tickets to register your guest.

Directions from the ICC: Walk along the boardwalk of the south end of Darling Harbour for about 5 minutes. You'll pass the Aquarium, then go up an outside escalator to get to the restaurant. Look for our wayfinders along the way! We'll be out on the terrace in the fresh air, so a light jacket might be necessary after the sun sets a little before 7:30pm.
