Financial Counselling Australia 2018 conference is being held at the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Hobart, Tasmania

TUESDAY | MAY 15 | 7.00 PM

The Jan Pentland Conference Dinner

We're calling it the 'new moon in Tassie dinner'. The moon represents the rhythm of time. The Jan Pentland conference dinner means that it is time to celebrate your work and the good people in our space.

New moons signify new beginnings, new opportunities. It also means that it’s time to enjoy ourselves with new and old friends, great food and wine, and perhaps let loose a little . . .

If you’ve heard of Thailand's full moon, dance all night beach parties, with hallucinogenic after effects . . . our Tassie conference dinner won’t be quite like that. But we will make merry (gently) because life is short, and celebrations are good.
