Professional Development Groups
Professional Development Groups contribute a vital element of Resolution Institute services in Australia by connecting personally with Resolution Institute members in their local city through organising local professional development and networking events. This group works with the Resolution Institute office, to provide stimulating professional learning and networking events at the local level.
These groups will be formed under clause 8 of the Resolution Institute Constitution and the By-laws for the establishment of groups of members. More about this type of group can be found in the Terms of Reference.
