MORE ABOUT THE EVENT: The RASBJ EGM will take place before the sit-down dinner. At the EGM, members will vote in-person or by proxy on a resolution related to its recent registration, which was emailed to members. Why did RASBJ register officially? To better serve its surging membership — which has tripled since late 2019 – RASBJ is regularising to be more sustainable, professional and innovative in offering high-quality events for the intellectually curious on a larger scale.
