invitation to attend CEDA State of the State Business Lunch

I was invited by Westpac when another attendee became unavailable. I would like to accept the offer from Westpac as I am interested in the presentation from the Premier. I do not have any direct influence on the banking contract as this is administered by the Department of Treasury and Finance. I am the main liaison point for DHHS with Westpac in regards to the services that they provide to the Department /THS. Darren is the Manager of the Tasmanian Client Service area of Westpac.
