If you are interested in assisting with any activities, please contact send an email to Rob Kerr at firstname.lastname@example.org. Melbournes section members are wanted for Thursday afternoon set, and on Friday or Saturday for example, helping register, check attendees' meal tickets and assist speakers.
Why is the last registration more than two weeks before the conference starts?
The Venue requires time to order for catering purposes. We need to know the number of attendees two weeks prior to the event.
Why is the conference being separated from the AGM?
The AGM must be a notified General Meeting, at least 30 days prior, and the business must be spcified in the notification. The Conference will bring up new items for discussion. So the General Business Sessions will be run to explorethese, but as these item will be "from the floor", they are inconsistent with the "General Meeting" status.
