The 2018 COAT National Conference will be held at the QT Canberra Hotel on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 June.
On behalf of the Conference Committee, we would like to invite you to attend the 2018 COAT National Conference. The theme for the 2018 Conference is: 'Toward the Horizon - Tribunals of the Future'.
This year the program will focus on features of the broader community, future trends within Australasia and the impact they will have on the work of tribunals.
In other words, we will be looking well outside the day-to-day work of tribunals to understand changes in the environment in which we operate, in order to inform the development of future practices.
There will also be sessions dealing with the skills that tribunal members need to do their work successfully - such as preparing and delivering ex tempore decisions and identifying and dealing with conflicts of interest.
The Conference Dinner will be held at the Australian War Memorial; just one of Canberra's nationally acclaimed cultural sites, on the evening of the Thursday 7 June, 2018.
With Canberra's new rise to travel notoriety, there has been a city-wide push to establish the city's own contemporary and unique sense of style.
The venue for the 2018 Conference, QT Canberra, is a luxury boutique hotel with a designer streak complete with an ounce of wit and attitude. Offering an 'intriguing yet relaxing experience' along with service that shines.
The 2018 COAT National Conference is both a valuable professional development activity and a fantastic opportunity for delegates to network with like-minded colleagues.
