Corporate Registers Forum

I was the Secretary of the Corporate Registers Forum from its inception in 2003 until 2011.

The Corporate Registers Forum (CRF) is an international not for profit organisation for administrators of corporate and securities registers. The aim of the CRF is to provide delegates with the opportunity to review the latest developments in corporate business registers internationally and exchange experiences and information on the present and future operation of corporate business registration systems. 

In the time I was Secretary the organisation grew in membership from 13 jurisdictions to 42.  Attendance at the annual conference grew from 30 to 180.
