ROSA is delighted to announce our 8th annual ROSACon will be held from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th November 2021.
Times dictate the conference will need to be held online. This of course gives us the added advantage of providing members far and wide with the opportunity to attend.
ROSACon 2021's theme is Togetherness.
We look forward to seeing you there!
