It has certainly been an incredible year at the Melbourne Forum and we are delighted that Her Excellency the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria and Mr Anthony Howard AM QC will be joining us at this very special event to celebrate.

The Governor was an inaugural member of the Melbourne Forum prior to her appointment as the 29th Governor of Victoria and we are honored that she will be addressing the Melbourne Forum as we celebrate our 10-year anniversary.

With the State Library of Victoria’s incredible $88.1 million redevelopment, the Isabella Fraser Room, named after the library’s first listed female staff member, has been reopened after being closed for over a decade.

Together, this remarkable cocktail party is not to be missed.

Bring a guest and join fellow members to celebrate the success of the Melbourne Forum. Our AGM will take place from 5:30pm – 6:00pm then the festivities will begin.

The evening will be filled with wine, canapés and great conversation
