Accommodation: Mercure Canberra ‘Olims’ (Corner of Ainslie & Limestone Avenue). Phone 02 6243 0000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . Limited accommodation is available at $155 for a Standard Deluxe Room.
It is members responsibility to arrange your own accommodation however it will go quickly. Please quote Block Code ‘2/4 AGM’ when booking in order to secure the best price.

Those of you that are financial 2/4 RAR association members, as at 10 Apr 17 will be afforded a dinner subsidy of $25 per member. This will mean that the total dinner cost to MEMBERS will be $54 (which will need to be paid before cutoff 15 Jul 17). Any person who joins the association from 10 Apr unfortunately will not benefit from the 2017 AGM Subsidy; however your attendance will be very much appreciated and you certainly will benefit from all future subsidies.
