2016 Women in Credit Luncheons 
Thank you to the hundreds of Women in Credit that attended luncheons around Australia this year.

The 2016 WINC luncheons were a huge success in every division as we moved to WA and SA for the inaugural events this year. 

NSW, QLD and VIC saw great attendances following on from the 2015 events with the help of our sponsors Veda, Results Legal and NCI.

Together the WINC functions raised over $7,000 for charities focused on helping women.

To relive the luncheons or see what you missed out have a look at the photos on the Credit Network
