An invitation from Chris Ivey, AHISA National Chair

With great pleasure I invite you to the 2020 Leading, Learning & Caring Conference (LLC2020).

Amplifying leadership impact is one of AHISA’s core values. Put simply, we want to support members throughout their professional journey and conferences are a key part of that. The conference committee have selected excellent speakers and presenters, covering each of the aspects of Leading, Learning and Caring. Our passion to learn and grow is what drives us and I am so pleased is the foundation on which this conference is built.

At LLC 2020 you can connect with colleagues from independent schools from around Australia. It is in these moments, when we take time out of our schools that we can consider the key elements of education and educational leadership and reinforce both personal and professional relationships with those who share our interest in the importance of autonomous and creative school leadership.

Set against the backdrop of Australia’s most cosmopolitan city, the LLC 2020 conference promises to be an unmissable event and I look forward to seeing you there.

Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre

Set in the heart of the city, the Convention and Exhibition Centre is Melbourne's premier event location.
