Final confirmation of your registration will be sent upon receipt of payment by QETA.

Parking:

There is limited parking on the grounds of Brisbane Girls Grammar School, and QETA suggests parking in surrounding streets such as Gregory Terrace. Do watch parking restrictions and metered parking however, to avoid the dreaded parking inspectors!

For the session relating to the Economics Syllabus (and perhaps for other sessions as well), QETA requests that you bring a laptop computer or other similar electronic device. WIFI will be available for participants

PD Certificate

After the Conference, a Professional Development Certificate will be forwarded to you via email, for inclusion in your PD portfolio log.

If you have special dietary requirements please indicate this when registering in the appropriate space. The catering will be delicious.

COVID safe protocols:

Please note QETA will be adhering to the BGGS Covid Safe plan. This will include all participants having to sign in via the Qld Government app on arrival and was a contributing factor to limiting the event to one large room for the event.
