Congress 2015: Be a winner in the ballot

Congress 2015Hot off the press is this news from the Congress 2015 Convenor. If you needed any more incentive to get your registration done sooner rather than later, here it is.

What to do:
Register for Congress by 30 November 2014 (by midnight, Sydney time)


Email by 2 December 2014 (by midnight, Sydney time) to indicating your preference/s.

Here’s Kerrie’s news:

Opportunities for after hours research at these national institutions will be available during Congress 2015 – but the times and numbers are strictly limited. Because these opportunities are so limited we ask that you do not enter the ballot if you are easily able to get to the institutions during their normal opening hours or if you are spending additional time in Canberra before/after Congress to access the institutions. Dates, times and maximum numbers are:

  • Australian War Memorial:  5-7pm on 26th March for a maximum of 40 people
  • National Archives of Australia: 5-7pm on Thursday 26th March for a maximum of 15 people.
  • National Library of Australia: 5-8pm on Friday 27th March for a maximum of 40 people

Everyone who is registered for Congress by midnight (Sydney time) 30 November 2014 will be eligible to enter the ballot.  Entries will need to be received by midnight (Sydney time) on 2 December. Successful entrants will be notified as soon as possible after that time.

Each of the institutions has some additional information about making the most of these research opportunities.  The additional information will be sent to those successful in the ballot.

Entry into the ballot is simple – just send an email to indicating your preference/s


Family asking what you would like for Christmas?   Perhaps they could give you a Congress Registration, a ticket to the Welcome function or the dinner or a copy of Congress proceedings.  And there are certain to be some ‘must haves’ among the goodies that our exhibitors will have on display.

What great opportunities!
