Has it really been a year since the last Australian Federal Budget? No surprises for the tertiary sector this year, but some good news for regional institutions with funding over four years for nearly 700 extra student places for young people from regional areas. This is in direct response to this year’s release of the Independent Review into Regional, Rural and Remote Education. There’s a full summary of Budget outcomes for our sector on page 8.
A couple of significant calendar dates: Registrations for the upcoming AAIR SIG Forum in Canberra are still open (early bird registration ending 24 May 2018). The theme this year is: Politics, Planning and Performance: Good Governance Starts How? Sub-themes this year include: business intelligence and analytics; data warehousing; load management, and; government reporting.
And, Melbourne provides the perfect setting for the 2018 AAIR Annual Forum with the theme: Reflecting on the Past, Experiencing the Present, Shaping the Future closer to the end of the year (19 to 21 November). Registrations are now open, as are the call for abstracts.
