VOLUNTEERS INVITED TO REGISTER INTEREST FOR AFAC 2012
AFAC and the Bushfire CRC have again joined together to present Australia’s peak emergency management conference offering volunteers the opportunity to mix with colleagues from around Australia and the globe. This is the nation’s largest and most important emergency services and public safety conference. This year Perth has the privilege to host the AFAC conference and this provides the unique opportunity to send a strong contingent of WA emergency services personnel.
FESA would like to invite volunteers from across all services to register their interest to attend the Conference at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 28-31 August 2012.
The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Diverse country. Common ground. which reflects the diversity across the country that underpins the mutual challenges faced in preventing, preparing, responding to and recovering from emergencies and disasters. More than 1000 delegates are expected to attend the four day event with key activities that include a research forum, two day conference program and professional development opportunities.
If you would like to attend the Conference, please complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) form and return by Wednesday 11 July.
Although places are limited, if your nomination is not successful an opportunity to attend still exists as a ‘Red Shirt’ helper.
As a ‘Red Shirt’ helper, in return for being an event assistant for a minimum of half a day, you will be given event uniforms, refreshments and be able to attend some of the sessions at the Conference. Please tick the box on the EOI form should you wish to be considered as a ‘Red Shirt’.
