Dates for CARAS Nations 2024 Events

While the four nations panels have very good ways of communicating dates of their events, (they organise) to their relevant nations, at a recent CARAS Council meeting it was agreed that Fellows and Associates from other Nations are very welcome to attend them. During 2024 we will be updating the CARAS Website to include a list of Nations events and how to book to attend.
