Hi [FirstName],

We've listened to some feedback from our members about our newsletters, so we're aiming to give you updates that are more targeted and easy to navigate. With so much happening at AVCAL, we'll ensure you're up to date on key developments across policy, advocacy, research and member engagement. Stay tuned for our events update in a couple of weeks. Please send us your feedback about how we can further improve our communication to keep you up to date with what we're doing to support a strong and sustainable private equity and venture capital industry in Australia.
