Announcement from the EBE NSW President about the 2021 EBE NSW Annual Conference and online 2020 HSC examination review sessions

This year the EBE NSW Annual Conference Organising Committee had organised an exciting 2021 EBE NSW annual conference which was to be held at UTS on Friday 23 July 2021 with one of our keynote speakers being the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Philip Lowe. Unfortunately the Sydney COVID-19 lockdown meant we could not hold the conference. We were hoping to hold it at a later date this year but this will now not be possible given the extended lockdown period. Planning will soon begin for our 2022 professional development program and this will include an annual conference where members will be able to gather together and engage in professional learning across the subjects we represent and support at what is the peak conference for Economics, Business Studies, Legal Studies and Commerce teachers in NSW.

All 2021 EBE NSW annual conference registration fees that had been paid will be refunded to attendees.

We have been able to organise some of the 2020 HSC examination review workshops which were part of the 2021 EBE NSW annual conference program to occur online. See details below. We hope you can attend these workshops if they will be useful for you.

Regards,

Joe Alvaro
