President's Letter - July 2020

Dear RACI Victorian Branch community,

Wishing you, your family, friends and colleagues well and warm. It is amazing that we are in the middle of the year; our days are colder and darker earlier.

And we are still at home working in isolation. While in isolation, we have not
stopped connecting and working. Well done to our determination and inspiration.
