Members Day Conference 2011

The Members Day conference on the 3rd December 2011 was a great success and we enjoyed networking with new members of TBN, hearing about some amazing new projects fighting poverty all over the world, and had the chance to discuss the areas TBN will be focussing on in the next few years.

Presentations, videos and audio recordings from the conference can now be found on our resources section here.
