40th anniversary gala dinner


To celebrate 40 years of postgraduate advocacy at CAPA, we are hosting a gala dinner as part of our Annual Council Meeting. We would love to have past CAPA presidents and committee members to attend.

The gala will be held on Thursday the 5th of December, 6:30 – 11:30pm, at the exclusive Long Room at the Immigration Museum in Melbourne.

The gala is sponsored by Monash Graduate Association, Victoria University, and the University of Melbourne Graduate Student Association.

We are pleased to announce the keynote speaker will be Dr Cathy Foley, CSIRO Chief Scientist and a former National Secretary of CAPA.


Tickets to the Gala Dinner cost $160 inc GST. This is to recover some of the costs of running the event.

We have a limited number of early-bird release tickets available for $130 inc GST. Early-bird tickets have been extended until the end of September.

Your ticket includes a three-course meal plus canapes and beverages, and access to the museum’s Leaving Home exhibition which will be open exclusively for our guests to enjoy.

Note: this information is only for those wishing to buy tickets to the Gala Dinner who are not also attending the Annual Council Meeting. For affiliates attending the Annual Council Meeting, a ticket to the dinner is included.
