29th TRIENNIAL WORLD CONFERENCE

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA      4 - 10 APRIL 2019

The 29th Triennial Conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia from Wednesday 4 April 2019 to Wednesday 10 April 2019.  We will be guests of the Country Women’s Association of Victoria.  The venue is the very modern and centrally located Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.  You can find out more about the venue by visiting their website at www.mcec.com.au

The convention centre opened in 2009, and is a purpose-built facility in the heart of Melbourne.  Located on the Yarra River, the convention centre’s facilities are supported by the wonderful city around it, and the both the Country Women’s Association of Victoria, and the city itself, have made it clear that we will receive a very warm welcome.

 

With 700 or more delegates expected at this event, the Triennial Conference Committee (TCC), the hostess society (CWA of Victoria), the Central Office staff and the Executive are in constant correspondence and planning mode. The first TCC meeting of this triennium was held in October 2016 at which insightful and informative feedback from members and staff were heard. All this is being taken into consideration during the planning of this big event.

 

During the next two and a half years, the TCC, CEO and Nick Newland will regularly pass relevant information relating to the forthcoming World Conference to you by means of the Countrywoman, Circulars, our ACWW website at www.acww.org.uk, our Facebook page and Twitter. Since we now know and understand social media, the message can more easily be spread amongst our members.

 

We extend a warm invitation to all members and member societies to plan ahead and attend the ACWW Conference in 2019. Encourage and try to get as many as possible first timers there and for the old timers, please come back to meet up with friends again. The ACWW World Conference is the place where all the work done worldwide by our members gets recognized, where policies are decided and where Resolutions and Recommendations are submitted and discussed. This is the stage from which we get our message out to the world.

 

More importantly, it is also the place where we learn from each other, where we share compassion and knowledge but also where life-long friendships are built. Meeting up again after three years with ACWW friends is like a tonic for laughter and good times.

 

The theme for this triennium is “90 Years of Achievements, Building 90 Years of Opportunities”.  Let us look forward and optimally utilize every day to live up to this theme.  We hear so much positive feedback after every conference, and know that friendships forged at these events can last a lifetime.

 

Our fondest wish is to see many ACWW members and member societies in Melbourne where CWA ladies are already hard at work to make it an unforgettable and memorable event. They will welcome all with open arms and friendly smiles.

 

We are also proud to introduce the new Conference Badge, which has just been approved by the Triennial Conference Committee at their meeting in March.  It is a map of the state of Victoria, with the Honeyeater bird sampling Pink Heath (epacris impressa).

 

See you in Melbourne!
