Planning for our flagship event is well underway. Bronwyn Lea, UQ and Claire Hansen, JCU have agreed to present the keynotes.

Sure to be lots here for everyone.
The Program has been uploaded to the website and is currently being printed and will be mailed to members later this week.  Maximums will apply to some of the workshops; places will be allocated in the order of receipt of registration. Get in early for best choice!
It is expected that not all workshops listed will actually run so it is important that you choose TWO DIFFERENT workshops for each session as requested.
