I see the Conference Program for 2014 is now out on their website, see http://www.charteredaccountants.com.au/Training/Conferences. Even if the full programs are not yet available, it is handy to be able to block off the time in diaries, including the Early Bird cut off.
Then later when the programs are available, you can decide if you want to attend and at least know the dates are still set aside in your diary.
I do hear a variety of responses to Conferences, that they were very good, to the other extreme, that participants learnt nothing. As with any endeavour, maximum benefit can be derived, if you plan beforehand. Message to self, must do an article on this, how to get maximum benefit from a CPE activity.
Of course the the other benefit is reassurance. If you decide you know most of what is covered by speakers, then good on you. Use the time to network well, that may be where you find gems.
Will you be attending any of the ICAA Conferences, or indeed any of the other Conferences available?
