conference program

  

The executive met in Launceston in early April to progress the conference planning.  The venue was more than we expected, with a great setting overlooking grasslands and parks.  The accommodation was comfortable and relaxing.  The inhouse dining was great.  I think that the package that we are being offered for the conference is good value.  The submissions for presentations at the conference demonstrate that community corrections and probation/parole work continues to develop and I encourage you to consider attending.  Wendy Vernon President
