The 2020 Conference has been deferred. The work which our Conference Committee has already undertaken will transfer to 2022 where we look forward to also hosting a wonderful conference for everyone. Planning has begun for the 2021 Conference to be held in Port Macquarie during the second half of next year.

NFHS has reopened for members only (please wear your Membership Badge) on Thursdays from 1pm–3pm and from on Saturday from 10am–12 and 1pm–3pm.
See your June Newsletter (also on the Member Only page) for the procedure in place for members to visit our rooms.
We are slowly reintroducing some outdoor events and are trialling Zoom meetings beginning August 4. 
Our Links page has some interesting activities and websites that Members may like to explore. Our planning continues and if you can assist, there are plans for a November meeting to continue with our Society's education courses here.
