Preliminary Announcement

Following on from the success of the 2014 combined ISANA/ANZSSA conference, the 2017 Annual Conference will be jointly organised by ANZSSA and ISANA on the beautiful Gold Coast, Queensland,  famed for its stunning endless beaches, restaurants and natural beauty.

The theme for the conference is ‘Widening Perspectives of Student Success’.

The conference will give us the opportunity to explore and discuss the many factors that contribute to the overall student success, both within and outside the classroom. There will be an exciting program of speakers, workshops, social activities and lots of networking opportunities. Delegates will be able to share successful strategies, engage with key stakeholders and develop important partnerships.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Gold Coast in December 2017.
