It is that time of year again where most people are winding down for the year, however the next 3 months are the busiest time of the year for the TCRN staff as it is reporting season for us.
The TCRN members will also be required to report their annual activity survey. This forms part of the membership responsibility and is required to ensure ongoing membership for 2015.
The survey will be released in January 2015 and will be open for approximately 6 weeks. All members are encouraged to complete the survey promptly to avoid reminder emails.
