It is with regret that we have decided not to proceed with the National Conference to be held in Hobart on the 27 & 28 September 2021. The ‘Recovery’ may have been just too optimistic.
Unfortunately, due to the escalating co-vid situation across Australia and Tasmania’s border being very firmly closed by the Premier, we feel that it is too risky to continue with hosting the Conference. Due to the situation, we feel that the number of persons able to attend will be severely affected due to so many unknown variables. This does not make for a successful conference.
ANZELA would like to acknowledge and thank the following persons who put together a proposal to present at the 2021 conference. We thank them for their support of ANZELA and hope that we will hear them present at a future conference.
- Professor Stephen Smallbone
- Andrew Knott, Holding Redlich, Brisbane
- Rachel Pepper, University of Technology, Sydney
- Jason Newman, Gilchrist Connell, Melbourne
- Steven Troeth, Gadens, Melbourne
- John Orr, Southern Cross University NSW
- Charlie Russo, University of Dayton, OH USA
- Stephanie McLuckie, Carroll & Odea Lawyers, Sydney
- Jackie Bone-George, Australian Education Union South Australia
- Cecelia Irvine-So, Moores, Melbourne
- Kate Walawski, Perth, WA
In September 2022, the National Conference will be hosted by South Australia in Adelaide. With a road map out of Co-Vid now in place, restrictions should ease and we hope that some normality is restored to families and businesses who must be doing it very tough. Our thoughts are with all those affected across Australia as well as our New Zealand neighbours.
We wish the NZ Chapter every success for their mini conference to be held 6 September 2021 in Wellington
