Develop working committees that engage our members in discussing relevant issues that promote debates, exchanging experiences as well as warning on relevant news. Five working committees, Legal RJ – Legal SP – Finance – HR – Regulatory and a special member forum for GOLD members only, held under the Chatam House Rule.
