2020 Special Council Meeting

About the Special Council Meeting
Due to the COVID-19 Travel restrictions, the 2020 Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations (CAPA) Special Council Meeting (SCM) will be held on the 30-31st of May 2020 online via Zoom. As with all SCMs we will continue the tradition to bring postgraduate associations from universities around Australia together.

The SCM is an opportunity for you to provide feedback and to adjust the direction of CAPA. This is also an chance to raise new issues which you believe CAPA must prioritise this year. As we begin the road to recover out of COVID-19, your input will vital to CAPA’s strategy as we work through this recovery phase.

We thrive to make this an invaluable online experience by arranging external speakers, discussion panels and skill-sharing sessions.; but also facilitate an online networking environment so you can begin collaborations with other postgraduate student leaders from all around Australia.

This year’s SCM will also be hosting elections for a new Vice-President/General Secretary and Disabilities officer for the remainder of 2020.
