AusAPT 2020 Conference Presenter Proposals due date extended to 30 April

We are monitoring the current situation and considering the impacts of the Coronavirus in our planning for THRIVE AusAPT in NZ 2020. Given the current uncertainties, the due date for presenter proposals has been extended to 30 April. This will give the AusAPT National and Conference Committees time to review the situation further then. If you are interested in presenting, this gives you more time to draft and submit a conference session proposal. We encourage you to submit.

Session Proposal for THRIVE: AusAPT in Auckland 2020 Conference

AusAPT 2020
AusAPT 2020

It’s time to Thrive! Will you be one of our Conference Presenters in 2020?

The Australian and New Zealand Type communities are coming together for Thrive: AusAPT in Auckland 2020 on 5-8 November and we are inviting you to submit your Session Proposal to be a presenter at the conference.

The Australian Association of Psychological Type (AusAPT) expands the knowledge of psychological type and supports the ethical use of psychological type and type instruments.

Bringing our community and conference presenters together every year is at the heart of what we do, and our conference curation continues to improve year on year. To help us help you, and our conference delegates, we have streamlined our guidelines, submission and selection processes. You can submit your proposal online in 2020.

Some background information to help you:

  • Session proposal submissions are due by midnight 30 April AEDT (extended from 20 March given Coronavirus impacts)
  • All concurrent sessions will be 75 minutes.
  • The majority of the conference sessions will be in a conventional conference function room setting with audio-visual facilities. We also have the option for more informal, conversation-based sessions in a lounge setting.
  • We are planning three concurrent streams – professional and personal development as well as a third stream of mixed informal sessions in the more casual space. We have provided an option for whether you would like your session in a more typical conference presentation format or in a more informal, conversational setting, or if either is fine.
  • Presenters are expected to attend and engage with the AusAPT and New Zealand type community. Presenter conference registration will be affordable, and not a barrier to participation.
  • No payment is provided for presenters, but a special presenter’s conference registration rate is available for presenters whose proposal is successful. (Likely to be NZ/AUD 400, approx USD250 for all presenters inclusive of main conference from Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon including lunches and the conference dinner on Friday.)
  • We anticipate we will get a response back to you about your submission in the first week of May.
