How to register

The weekend is ultimately made up of 3 elements:-

1. AGM - the National Secretary as per the  constitution (voting rights etc) is there to ensure this is the formal part of conference *
2. Conference - Guest Speakers to educate, inspire and excite members of the association
3. Networking, and workshop options - your chance to share knowledge and friendships

*The National Secretary has helped facilitate discussions (that everyone was invited to attend via Zoom) to ensure that the AGM is a productive 3 hour AGM and less of the onerous and laborious 2 day event. 

Zoom option
Due to the successful Zoom conference last year, there is also this option available as well. However to ensure there is professional audio and video streaming, there is a cost to this. 

When you register, choose "Zoom attendance" $174 (a great option to stream to committee members keen to be involved but can't attend in person)

Attending in person
Due to the possibility of Covid Restrictions - we are limiting the conference to 100 people,  so that we can still go ahead should level 2 kick in. This means space WILL sell out. Book early to avoid disappointment

Note on costs:
The cost $174 to attend the AGM and conference not only covers lunch and morning/ afternoon tea, but covers costs associated with securing guest speakers, the technology to Zoom the conference and the hire of the conference facilities and all the behind the scenes expenses.
The branch have worked hard to keep costs to a minimum and will be running the conference with volunteers from the membership.
