SOCLA 2023 National Conference

'Between a Rock and a Hard Place'

25 to 27 May at Uluru

SoCLA is pleased to announce that registrations, the call for abstracts and accommodation bookings are now open on the Conference Website!

Our 2023 Conference will take place from 25 to 27 May at Uluru, and we are excited to present you with a world class program, led by a keynote address from Western Australia’s first indigenous Supreme Court Judge, the Honourable Michael Lundberg. In addition we are planning a glittering social program, including welcome drinks, the black tie Sounds of Silence Gala Dinner, and a family friendly poolside BBQ banquet on the last evening of the Conference.

The program allows time for sightseeing and we encourage members to consider bringing their families and making the most of the opportunity to see one of Australia’s most iconic regions.

Given the remote location for this year’s Conference, we strongly urge members to register as soon as possible, and to book accommodation through the website, and flights, at the time of registration. Flights and accommodation are necessarily limited, and it is not possible to stay offsite (all accommodation options are within the resort).

The Sponsorship Prospectus will be available shortly.

We look forward to welcoming you to our 10th National Conference.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the conference.
