International UAI Conference – Sydney, 14 – 18 July 2006
The countdown is on----just 190-odd days until the commencement of the International UAI Conference. Hosting an event such as this is an incredible privilege, and I’m sure it will be an experience we will remember for many, many years. If you haven’t already done so, get your registrations in and finalise your travel plans – this is one you should not miss!!
The conference committee has been very busy and we are well and truly on track. All key milestones in the project plan have been met and we are under budget. The purpose of this article is to give you a bit of an update on what has been done so far, what still needs to be done, and how you can get involved.
Theme - The Rewards of Isolation: Small Teams in Deep Waters We are going to have access to some brilliant minds throughout the 4-day event, with 7 plenary sessions, over 25 workshops to choose from, and approximately 10 different study group topics. The programme has been designed to ensure that all attendees have the opportunity to grow, develop, and expand their understanding of The Urantia Book’s concepts. The workshop facilitators come from around the world and offer a diversity that has never been seen before on Australian shores.
Venue and accommodation The Women’s College is a magnificent, historical building, located on the outskirts of Sydney University. The venue is perfect for Sydney’s clear winter days and chilly nights – all rooms are internally accessed, there is a lovely little protected courtyard that captures the sun, and the general “feel” of the place is cosy, calm, and welcoming.
The conference committee, the volunteers, and the International contingent are all very confident this is going to be a well planned, well executed, and well attended event. The overall aim of our conference committee is to facilitate an event that encourages learning and stimulates the development of our minds and our souls.
