2020 Online AGM and CPD technical seminar - Thursday 9 July 2020

  • 27-2-2020

*****Important update: event now being hosted online*****

As Members know, we had to postpone the 2020 AGM and seminar. This was primarily as a result of our venue cancelling all external events until further notice due to COVID-19 contingency measures being implemented.

We are now very pleased to announce that our AGM will take place online - Thursday 9 July 2020 - with support from The Nineteen Group and Fire Safety Matters publications.

Thank you for your patience and continued support for RIFA. We also thank our previous hosts Aviva for their support.
