2018 Special Council Meeting

The 2018 Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations (CAPA) Special Council Meeting (SCM) will be held on the 11th to 13th of April 2018 at the University of Technology Sydney. The SCM is hosted by UTS Students’ Association.

The registration form may be accessed here.

The SCM is an opportunity for you to monitor the progress and adjust the direction of CAPA. It is also a chance for you to raise new issues which you believe CAPA must prioritise this year. We will also be holding workshop sessions on the internal CAPA governance review as requested by affiliates last year. This is your chance to shape the future of CAPA as an organisation.

Affiliate organisations are invited to make submissions to the agenda by the 12th of March 2018. All agenda items should be sent to the General Secretary: gensec@capa.edu.au. The draft schedule can be downloaded here.

30 March 2018 – Registration closes and credentialing forms due
