Our SFiO Focus 2021

Building on the progress made in 2020

During our SFiO AGM on 17 January 2021, we explored how SFiO can continue and enhance its contribution to making good quality SF accessible for everyone. 2020 was a very unexpected year where we have shifted our energy towards creating ways of connecting and learning online as a community.
