NAAC2013 Conference News
The Association`s fifth biennial conference, NAAC2013, will be held in Brisbane on the weekend of 9-10 November. This will be our first such conference to be held outside Sydney, as part of the diversifying of these activities. There is an NAA Organizing Committee (Walter Bloom, Peter Lane and Colin Pitchfork), and a Local Organizing Committee (Bernie Begley, Stephen Appleton, John Cook and George Snelgrove); in each case the first named person is the Chair.
Details will be posted as they come available, but do please note the dates and also the venue (The Irish Club, 175 Elizabeth St, Brisbane). The talks will be held on the Saturday and Sunday, with a conference dinner on the Saturday evening. An informal get-together will be held on the Friday night for early arrivals.
The Brisbane Coin fair will be held on the previous Sunday (3 November), so do factor this in when making your travel arrangements.
Plenary Speakers: Walter Bloom, George Dean, Peter Lewis, Gary Weston-Webb, Session Speakers: Hugh Armstrong, Phil Benjamin, Darren Burgess, Mike Carter, Gil Davis, Tony James, Lyn Kidson, Roger McNeice OAM, John Melville-Jones, Barrie Newman, John Pearn, Colin Pitchfork, David Rampling, Tim Roberts.

While not recommending particular hotels, of which there are many in the Brisbane CBD, many of the conference participants are staying at the Rendezvous Hotel on ANZAC Square. There is a very good Advance Payment option, and better still for three nights or more. The hotel is opposite Central Railway Station (hence easily accessible from the airport) and a few minutes’ walk from the Irish Club.
