ASCCA News:

19th ASCCA Conference on 8 & 9 November

ASCCA Conference

Greetings all,

It is just 6 weeks to the 19th Australian Computer Conference for Seniors which will be held at Rydges World Square Hotel, 389 Pitt Street, Sydney on Wednesday 8th & Thursday 9th of November. You will be pleased to know that we have kept the cost the same as last year. Check the prices on the attached flyer (one page PDF file, 1.6 MB).

There is a link on the home page which will give you information about the venue and how to get there, information about speakers and registration details. There is also a conference price for accommodation at Rydges but be aware that this offer ends on 8 October! Those who have attended before know what a wonderful venue it is and just how good it is to have a sit down lunch after selecting from a fabulous buffet.

We have lined up a really good mix of speakers and as they return their speaker's sheets, we are adding their details to the ASCCA conference website. Our Minister for Ageing, The Hon Tanya Davies will open the conference and the other speakers include Julie Inman-Grant the eSafety Commissioner, Yvette Sims and Helen Milner to talk about Be Connected — Improving Digital Literacy of Older Australians. I know a number of you have questions about the Be Connected program, so this is a session you won't want to miss.

What would an ASCCA conference be without Peter Blasina, Charlie Brown and Alex Zaharov-Reutt! We know you will be glad to hear that we also have speakers from Google, NBN, Microsoft, ACCAN and eHealth. There are two double concurrent sessions, one each day. Day one will see Apple Initiatives — Accessibility & Lifelong Learning, while day 2 is entitled 24x7 Retail Therapy — How to browse and buy online. AND lots more.

It is pleasing to see some clubs paying for their trainers to attend but please make sure that all your members know that they can register for this conference. It is not only for those who are delegates from their clubs. This conference is open to all seniors and those who have an interest in technology.

Will I see you there? I do hope so!

Regards,

Nan
