Early Career Conference 2021

The Early Career Conference  in 2021 will be held on 23 October at Wynnum State High School, WYNNUM.

The program has been updated to reflect a change in workshop offerings in workshop sessions 2 and 5.

Registrations are now open until Saturday 16 October. As networking is an integral part of this day, it is envisaged that it will essentially be a face-to-face event. However, if there is sufficient demand we may record the keynote and some workshops, with recordings to be made available at a later date. If you are keen but unable to join us, please let our Admin officer know.

The three  workshops on offer in each  session will not necessarily all run, therefore when you are completing your registration, you are asked to nominate a first and second choice for each workshop session.
