The Board of SIGBI Trading Ltd are seeking volunteers to join a Conference Working Group. The Group will explore the possibility of a new format for the SIGBI Conference, to include consulting Members as to what sort of conference they would wish to experience. The Board would particularly like to hear from any Members who have marketing or conference/event organising skills. This is an exciting opportunity to bring a fresh approach to future conferences.
