Member Zone ShotIn the Member Zone, you have access to all sorts of resources such as our eGuide, branding documents and monthly newsletters. Utilising our eGuide effectively also entitles you to use our eGuide adoptee logo for your own use! You also have the ability to post your very own press releases, broadcasting your latest news to other members so that they can see what your venue is doing. You can also use this platform to advertise jobs and find the perfect person for your role.
