Advantage Conference


Society - Giving back to the community

Wednesday 22nd June

Our Electrical & Plumbing Network has a strong heritage of giving back to the local communities as part of our annual Conference events. In 2022 we continue this tradition, with some fantastic works and upgrades planned for a very worthy local charity in Port Douglas. The labour and materials supplied in this project will deliver much-needed improvements and enhancements to this hub of the community. This Taskforce day will be a rewarding and memorable experience for the many Members, Suppliers and Group staff that are able to attend and participate.
