Cost: $125 per person (Non members $175).  A small surcharge applies to payments made by credit card.

Dinner Speaker: Mr Kevin Reynolds

Over the years our Patron Jack Gregor has searched for speakers who are well known change agents in our community. This year’s speaker is well and truly in that mold. His public profile has been made in the union movement and the centre right of labor politics. His approach to industrial relations has left him with both friends and committed opponents.  He is recently retired form his Union positions but his public profile in politics is still high. He is an entertaining and forthright speaker. Kevin was for many years the Western Australian State Secretary for the Construction Foresty and Mining Union. Prior to this he was involved with the Builders Labourers Federation in the 1970s and 1980s when he was instrumental in the obtaining national award coverage for the building and construction industry. In doing so he transformed a moribund broke union by hard work and leadership into the industrially powerful, financially strong union it is today.
