Conference spotlight 2019

Posted on: 23 January 2019

Still thinking about whether you'll attend this year's IPEd conference? Now's a good time to make up your mind. The Provisional Program has just been released, and pre-conference workshop spots are filling fast. I signed up as soon as registrations opened, on the strength of my experience at the 2017 Brisbane conference - it was one of the best professional development events I've ever attended, with interesting and thought-provoking presentations, valuable networking opportunities and a chance to have some time away from work while exploring a different city.

I'm looking forward to catching up with the friends I made in 2017, meeting my Accreditation Board colleagues and hearing the keynote speakers (especially Susan Butler, former editor of the Macquarie Dictionary). Don't worry about not knowing anyone. It's really easy to meet people during the sessions (so many editors LOVE to talk!) and you can also connect during the breaks while looking at the poster presentations and displays.

There's time left to register at the Early Bird rate if you get cracking before February 6. See you in Melbourne in May!
