The 2012 Annual Forum was held at the Crowne Plaza, Terrigal on the New South Wales Central Coast from Monday 12th to Wednesday 14th November, 2012.

The 2012 Forum focussed on the business of AAIR, Institutional Research. Whether you work in data warehousing, surveys, forecasting, planning or any of the many roles undertaken by our members, we hope the 2012 AAIR Forum provided you the scope to lead the discussion from your own perspective. Leading practitioners in the IR fields discussed and helped develop ideas, confirming the Forum as the place that puts institutional research front and centre. The Program is also available.
