NIMAC 2016 Conference

NIMAC Professional Development Subsidy

In keeping with our mission and objectives to provide supportive professional networks for our members as well as encouraging members to participate in educational forums, this year, as we have done for the past many years, we will be offering (financial) members the opportunity to lodge an application for consideration as part of our Professional Development Subsidy Scheme.
This year we will be offering up to twenty (20) registrations to our Conference “Nursing with Attitude 2016”  to be held at Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast on 2-3rd   June 2015.  The Subsidy is worth $640.00 – the value of a full registration for the Conference & Trade Exhibition.  This just leaves successful applicants to cover travel and accommodation expenses. Successful applicants will be drawn from all regional branches.


The Application Form is attached. You will need to complete the details on the form and post it or email (preferred) it back to NIMAC by Tuesday 26th April 2016.   If last year is any indication, the scheme will be very popular and hotly contested, so it is important that you get your form in within the timeframe, as we will be unable to consider any late applications.  
Successful applicants will be notified by Wednesday 27th April so that you have ample time to arrange your travel and accommodation as well as time away from your service.  It also allows unsuccessful applicants to still qualify for the Early Bird rate which end on 30th April 2016. We look forward to receiving your application.
We all know that the NIMAC conference is not only the best value for money but also the most fun conference to attend.
So, throw you name into the hat and see if you are successful in gaining a registration.
Remember – you must be a financial member (at least 6 months) to enter.
2015 Winners are unable to apply. They can reapply in 2017
