Given that the next AACS conference is still about 2 years away, it is possible that some of our members with 2-3 year projects will now miss the opportunity to present their work. To address the large gap between Armidale and the next 2022 conference, we will be running a program of webinars so that members can share their work and in particular provide an interim platform for our early career and student members to interact with the broader membership.

Whilst this idea was partially inspired by the current social distancing restrictions, the intent for these webinars is to create a regular program for our members to share project work and interact with the broader membership.
