The Australian Council for Computers in Education invites executive members of non-profit associations to a free professional learning event. There are two parts to the day - locate the work and charter of associations in a global context and to learn from other executives about the business of managing non profit organisations with volunteers. Everyone is a learner and everyone has expertise - a mutual sharing and a celebration of the great work of non profit organisations in leading ICTs in Education.

International Affiliates Day at the ACEC Conference
Information and Communication Technologies are expanding at an accelerated pace and are fast becoming an established standard in modern societies. Many countries have determined that preparing young people to participate fully in a modern society requires teaching and learning using these new technologies.
Education systems have been charged with meeting this challenge.
(ISTE, January 2006)
On Sunday the 1st of October the Australian Council for Computers in Education will be hosting an international forum for executives and their nominees of non-profit associations.
Members of associations from around the Pacific, Australia and New Zealand and from many International delegations, including delegates from the International Society for Technology in Education will be in attendance.
‘We know there is much to learn from each other as we have much in common.’
The forum will be a highly structured, interactive workshop focused on developing the ‘international knowledge’ of participants. It is unique chance to hear what is happening in other countries, a chance to make new friends and an opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues.
The workshop day will be for a maximum of 150 participants. The proposed time is from 9.00am until 3.00 pm, followed by the International Reception and registration for the conference.
The proposed structure of the day will include:
- The World perspective: International Briefings (5 minute presentations followed by questions) from a number of visiting delegates.
- Small workshop groups to allow for discussion time. (including time for reporting back to the forum) This would be a good time to discuss how local affiliates work. (ie conferences, membership, journals etc)
- A keynote presentation on International trends and contemporary learning.
At that conclusion of the day the forum will produce a Press Release for the National and International media on “ICT, International”
