    The IRSV hosts our annual Patron’s Night Event in November each year.

    In 2023, we were excited to welcome a panel of three Fair Work Commission members to present to IRSV members: Commissioners Nicholas Wilson, Mark Perica and Leyla Yilmaz.

    This end of year event is a fun way for members to come together, hear from a panel of speakers, and send off the year.

    This event is also coupled with our Annual General Meeting which runs for approximately 30 minutes before we open the Dinner.

    Details about the 2024 Patron’s Night Event, including how to register, will be provided closer to the event.
