CitC Business Consultant information

As part of our activities for CAASTRO in the Classroom, our national schools program, we need to hire a business consultant to help us with specific upcoming events. I anticipate that we would need to meet weekly for 3-4 hours from mid-September to the end of November, and I’d also like the consultant to be present for Galaxy Convention on 4-5 December this year, which they will help plan.
