August 2013
Coming to the end of “Women’s month” we reflect on how fast-paced this year has been and yet at the same time, we eagerly anticipate the dawn of spring!

We would like to encourage you to join us at our Annual Function on 12 September 2013 where we will have the opportunity to report on our activities from the previous financial year and share the strategy going forward.

Fasset would like to measure the readership of eFacts; please click here if you read this newsletter (no personal information will be captured, we are only monitoring the number of ‘clicks’)

Kind Regards
