This is your opportunity to contribute content to the AHISA Biennial Conference 2023! We are planning for an in-person event on the Gold Coast, Queensland, September 24-27, 2023.

AHISA and the 2023 Biennial Conference Committee want to hear from you! We are accepting abstract submissions for workshops and table talk presentations during our Biennial Call for Abstracts.


Types of presentations

For the AHISA Biennial Conference 2023, we have two different presentation types you can select from. Please see details below:

Workshop presentation
We invite you to structure a one hour workshop (inclusive of Q&A) that speaks to one of the core conference streams. These sessions will run concurrently with other workshops and are encouraged to offer interaction with delegates. Presenters will have access to a speakers preparation room prior to their session, and on the day will be provided with a lectern, microphone, clicker and PowerPoint facilities.

Table talk presentation
We invite Heads to share a recent practice or project implemented in their school. The session will be delivered at a roundtable format, within a time limit of 15 minutes (inclusive of Q&A), no overheads nor microphones although the talk could be supplemented with laptop images and/or handouts.
Across an hour, delegates will be able to move around to three such presentations.
Heads presenting will share their session three times.
Talks should relate to the stream (some examples are given below).
The time constraint means that presentations need to be narrow in scope, practical and have resonance with members.
▪  Sustainability: Designing a Sports Centre.
▪  Well-being: Implementing an individual Gratitude Journal in the Boarding House.
▪  Leadership: Leading well-being by example.

Members will also have a chance across the conference to connect with the presenter for further information.

   ▪  Wellbeing

Please note: Presenters are required to pay for their registration, accommodation and airfares to the conference; however, the early bird discount will be offered to all accepted presenters. If representing an organisation outside of the AHISA network of schools, please be aware that this is not an opportunity for a sales pitch. This is an opportunity to add to the national conversation around leadership in the independent schools sector and contribute to the professional development and educational outcomes of students in our care.  

Presenting at the AHISA Biennial Conference 2023 is an opportunity to contribute to the collegiality we value within AHISA and is seen as a wonderful opportunity to promote and enable you to build your professional profile.
