Once you have a full network and systems admin team, I'd like to take
advantage of this free training to get someone up to speed with using
FAM. Do you want to nominate a member of staff at this stage.
Alternatively we can book a place and make a decision on attendance
nearer the time. Let me know what you think.

resources to the whole UK Federation (and beyond).
