SLA Europe is delighted to end another year with an amazing array of events and webinars. We are now looking forward to planning various events for 2024. As our 2024 President Julia Bhojoo moves to take on the mantle from our 2023 President Shaun Kennedy, we are thrilled to announce our new President-Elect for 2024, Hilary Oakley.
