The West Australian Association of Teacher Assistants Inc.
2020 CONFERENCE & AGM
14, 15 & 16th August
Parmelia Hilton Hotel
14 Mill Street, Perth
Dear WAATA members
Given that the COVID 19 situation has rapidly evolved in Australia, the WAATA Committee have decided to postpone the Annual Conference to 2021.
The Committee believe it is the best action to take, to ensure the health and well-being of our community.
In regard to the 2020 AGM, we have sent an application requesting further time to hold the AGM to the Department of Mines Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) and await their reply. We will continue to keep all members informed of this outcome and all other relevant information via facebook, email, website and newsletters. The committee is also looking into ways to help keep our members connected via webinars and other methods of IT. Stay well and let’s look after each other the best way we can.
The Management committee wish to thank our 2019 Conference participants and presenters.
