Registrations are crucial as places are limited. Please register via the online form. Registrations will be via Eventrbrite and you will receive an email confirming your registration.

There are a limited number of places at this session available for you to invite colleagues who may benefit from attending. Registrations for these places are at a cost of $20 and are ticketed as "non Alumni ticket". Whilst the number of these tickets is limited, more tickets may be released one week prior to the event if alumni places are not filled.

* We have recently noticed an increased number of attendees either withdrawing on the day or not attending. To ensure places are secured by Alumni that have a specific interest in the topic being presented, we have introduced a booking fee of $20. This fee will be refunded to those alumni who attend or cancel 24 hours before the event. We thank you for your understanding regarding this new process.

We look forward to receiving your registration and seeing you at the session.
