A message from David Wright – Chair 2020

It has really been a bit of a waiting game to see whether circumstances would come together for us to consider running the AUSFOG Conference in the proposed hybrid format.  The events of recent weeks have now made it clear to us that that will not be possible in 2020.  Given the pressures facing all Australian Universities this year in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, changes to Government funding, the uncertainty around the return of international students and the intense planning currently being undertaken by Senior Finance Officers across all universities, we have taken the very difficult decision to postpone the AUSFOG Conference until 2021. 

So, the bottom line is that we will plan two meetings for next year.  We are hoping that the first will be in Sydney in June 2021 and the second will be hosted by Deakin and held in Melbourne in October.  Dates will be firmed up early next year.
