Early Bird Registrations are now open! The early bird offer will close on 29 March and standard rates will apply after this. We recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.
SNAICC is now offering early bird registrations for the 5th SNAICC National Conference to be held from 4 to 6 June this year in Cairns.
With the theme For Our Children: Living and Learning Together, the SNAICC conference will feature international and local keynote speakers and over 70 concurrent sessions including yarning circles and workshops.
The largest gathering of its kind in the southern hemisphere, the 2013 conference is expected to attract more than 1000 participants from all over the country.
Organisations and individuals will have until 29 March to take up the early bird offer, after which standard rates will apply.
The conference will be a great networking and learning opportunity for a diverse audience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, policy makers, researchers, government representatives and other non-government bodies. The conference has the following three key objectives:
Share and Celebrate Stories
To celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, strengths and successes in child and family services. To share our stories and ideas about what works and how we address our challenges.
To inspire and enable leaders, services and others to act in a way that strengthens Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander agency, self-determination, and connection to culture. To ensure the rights of our children and families are respected and fulfilled.
Listen, Learn and Grow
To listen, learn and grow our knowledge of Elders, families and communities, to strengthen our connection to culture. To inspire, foster and develop leadership and collective responses.
SNAICC ultimately aims to provide a culturally rich, interactive and culturally safe experience for all conference participants.
A reminder again that early bird registrations close on 29 March. All registrations will close on 17 May. We recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment!
