FAQ’s Virtual 36th Annual Meeting

We would have wished our first Annual virtual Meeting to have kicked off in a better way than it did. While we had prepared ourselves as much as we could, we are still facing some unforeseen technical problems which are causing access problems to the platform. Our technicians are doing everything they possibly can to try and solve the problems.
Missed something? All presentations will be available on demand for the months to come. Thanks for your continuous support and patience
