It is with pleasure that we invite you to join us at the 2011 APEN National Forum, to be held at the University of New England in Armidale NSW.
The APEN National Forum will deliver a dynamic program and is the catalyst for bringing many like-minded professionals together in a single forum that guarantees an environment of ideas, skill development, networking and information exchange. You will return to your work place with renewed motivation to drive practice change within your community.
The APEN philosophy of fostering skills that allow us to facilitate and drive change at both a community and industry level, is one that brings benefit to all who choose to be involved.
We welcome all practitioners, and all those involved in driving change and seeking new ways to achieve change within their communities, to attend the 2011 APEN National Forum.
Our invitation is extended to local government (particularly community development officers), community health professionals, community educators, community volunteering groups, youth workers the list goes on to join with the APEN membership that comprises largely agricultural and natural resource management practice change extension specialists, and share in our learning at APEN.
This year's forum, 'Hitting a Moving Target - Sustaining landscapes, livelihoods and lifestyles in a changing world', will focus on sharing and building experiences which will assist all delegates in meeting the modern challenges of the extension professional. APEN forums are designed to maximise delegate opportunities to be involved and grow personally and professionally through their participation in the forum.
This year's forum will be a blend of keynote speakers, presented papers, posters and a DIY space. We are very excited about the DIY space, which will allow delegates help design the forum for maximum benefits for all, and be involved in online discussion leading up to the forum.
Our invited keynote speakers are dynamic professionals who are outstanding leaders in their field of achieving change. We can all learn from their shared experiences and apply the learnings to our own field of expertise. With over 100 abstracts expected from within and outside our APEN membership, the concurrent and poster sessions will offer a fantastic range of practical presentations within your theme of choice.
Come and join with us, in Hitting a Moving Target - Sustaining landscapes, livelihoods and lifestyles in a changing world.
