Pre and Post Conference Workshop Policy

Preference for pre and post-conference workshops will be given to registrants who have also registered for the Conference. This means sociometry built during the pre and post-conference workshops has an effect on the conference as a whole. To assist the group process please notify the Conference Registrar as soon as possible if you cannot attend a pre or post conference workshop.

Disability Policy

In the service of inclusion of all members of AANZPA, we accommodate those with a disability at our annual gatherings, as far as possible in communication with those affected. We anticipate that there will be some limitations in meeting all needs. We undertake to not reduce people with a disability to their specific needs or unnecessarily draw attention to their disability, rather, we aspire to relate as one human being with another.


In our conference processes, we aim to strengthen sociometry to enhance the possibility of an encounter between people. We aim to stay spontaneous in the face of exhaustion and role fatigue. There is mutual responsibility whereby the expansion of roles and role reversal is encouraged by all parties.

A Disability Liaison Person/s (DLP) is/are appointed by the Executive for the long term. To maximize full participation of all attendees the conference committee will designate one of their members to work on these matters with their own committee, the venues, with the DLP, with the conference information regarding the limits of venues.

The DLP will keep in touch with the range of people with disabilities and liaise with the conference committee member responsible for implementing this policy. A conference committee member will ensure limitations of access etc., of the venue are communicated in the conference publicity and will liaise with the venues used by the conference anticipating and progressing negotiations on conference attendees’ behalf.
