2022 National Conference

The Melbourne 2022 conference theme is Beyond Borders.

If nothing else, recent events have demonstrated the ingenuity and resolve required to provide quality speech pathology services. Specifically, challenging and changed times has reminded us to stretch and reach beyond our perceived borders to achieve excellence with our practice, research, information dissemination and client and family engagement. It has also reaffirmed that speech pathologists’ reach and impact is far and wide. Thus, we invite speech pathologists to join us in Melbourne in 2022 to share and discuss how we have gone Beyond Borders with regards to clientele, research, information dissemination

Melbourne is the capital city of the state of Victoria and is home to more than five million people. It is the cultural capital of Australia, known for its music, art centres and museums, and celebration and expression of art. We have a proud history of cultural diversity – we’re made up of many different people from all kinds of cultures and all ages. We’re inclusive, progressive and respectful of people’s differences. Lose yourself in a wonderland of colourful street art, al fresco cafes, intimate wine bars, and quirky boutiques – you never know what you’ll find just around the corner.

We look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne for a jam-packed face-to-face conference highlighting the best of our vibrant, multicultural city, that is every foodie’s dream!
