AAAPC Annual General Meeting - Thursday July 30th, 5pm AEST via Zoom

It would be wonderful to have as many AAAPC members as possible at the AAAPC Annual General Meeting on Thursday next week. It will be an efficient meeting, including elections and the awarding of the prestigious Charles Bridges Webb Medal. 

We still have not received any nominations for Chair of the Conference and Professional Development Subcommittee - it's not too late to nominate a worthy colleague. Nominations close on Wednesday July 29 and more details are available on the website.

AAAPC Annual Research Conference - August 14-15 online

With less than one month to go, we are all excited for the AAAPC Annual Research Conference in August! Make sure you have a look at the website to see the great range of presentations and workshops in the program.

All speakers have been contacted about Speaker IT training sessions and it is encouraged that all speakers take the opportunity up in order to make the conference a smooth success.

There is also an opportunity for delegates to host small group discussions on a topic of their choice, similar to a small group discussion over lunch or coffee during a face to face conference. If you are interested in hosting a small group discussion, please email Dr Liz Sturgiss ( before the 7th of August with:

  • the topic of your small group discussion
  • your preferred time during the conference (early morning (from 0600 - 0830 AEST), lunch (1200-1300 AEST), or afternoon/evening (from 1730 AEST))
