Black Tie Dinner Dance
The Black Tie Dinner Dance has rightfully gained the reputation of being a “great night out” – wonderful food, magnificent wines and music by the Stewart Harrison Band which has everyone up dancing.
A recent addition to the evening has been Jarrod Alkemade’s Medical Trivia Quiz which is now a widely anticipated event on the social and intellectual calendar.
While the SMA has fulfilled a role in providing ongoing further education for the medical fraternity over the last 50 years, fostering a close relationship between members of the Shoalhaven medical fraternity has also been a high priority.
The Dinner, at the Nowra Golf Club, in the evening of the Conference provides the opportunity for doctors to renew acquaintances and also to meet the new faces who have arrived onto the Shoalhaven medical scene.
