“As members of the Associations Forum, our team at the Australian Spinal Research Foundation did Directors Training. With our Board being a group of volunteers, we found the Association's Forum facilitator could answer questions we had and give us a better understanding of our responsibilities as a Board. This has been very helpful, and we truly appreciate it”.Dr Ryan Seaman, Board Director and President, Australian Spinal Research Foundation
