We’ve been getting a few questions about registration, so we thought we’d answer the common ones in a post. Here goes!

Are the workshops included in my registration?

One half day workshop is included in your registration. You can upgrade to a full day workshop, add a second half day workshop, and add lunch for a small charge.

How do I tell you which workshop I want to go to?

You nominate which half day workshop you’d like to attend (or tell us you’d rather do a full day workshop) through the registration form. You can also add an additional workshop through the registration form.

Where have you hidden the workshop program?

You can access the workshop program from the Program page – you just need to choose “Workshops” from the “Symposium” drop down menu. Or go straight there with this handy link!

Is the BBQ included in the cost of my registration?

BBQ tickets are not included in your registration ticket, but at $15, it’s a bargain and an essential addition to your registration. You can purchase a BBQ ticket when you register for the Symposium.

Is food provided on the workshop day (Saturday)?

Morning tea or afternoon tea is included for half day workshops.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea is included for full day workshops.

If you’re attending one or two half day workshops, you can opt to have lunch with us. You’ll need to pre-purchase lunch when you register. If you’re doing two half day workshops, we highly recommend you join us for lunch as there won’t be anything open on campus.

Is food provided on the Symposium days (Sunday and Monday)?

It sure is! Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea is included on both days. To take advantage of the amazing weather we’re sure to have, we’ll be providing you with a boxed lunch so you can have a picnic in the nearby botanic gardens.

I’m a LIANZA member. Can I pay the ALIA Member registration rate?

Yes! LIANZA members are entitled to the ALIA Member registration rate.

Do I get a discount if I register for both NLS6 and Information Online?

We’ve worked hard to keep the cost of NLS6 as low as possible. Unfortunately this means we can’t offer you a discount for registering for both NLS and Information Online.

Is there a discounted registration rate for speakers?

We are offering speakers a complimentary BBQ ticket and a free upgrade to a full day workshop or a free ticket to a second half day workshop (plus lunch on the workshop day). To take advantage of this, please make sure you choose the Speaker rate when you register.

Is there a day registration option?

We have such an awesome event in store for you, we know you’d be disappointed if you missed half the program! We’re not offering one day registrations because the costs involved in a one day ticket mean we can’t offer them at a rate that we think is good value.

Our organisation wants to send a whole bunch of people. Is there a discount for bulk registrations?

We love your commitment to the professional development of your staff! Email us at events@alia.org.au or give us a call on 02 6215 8222 to discuss how we can help you get as many of your staff to the event as possible.

My organisation budgets on a calendar year cycle and we are not in a position to register until January. What should we do?

If you are looking to register multiple staff members but you cannot commit your budget until January, we suggest you get in touch with us to discuss your registration needs. Email us at events@alia.org.au or give us a call on 02 6215 8222.

I haven’t registered yet because there are all these bursaries available. Is it safe to wait til the winners are announced?

We strongly recommend you register early. If you win one of the many bursaries on offer, we will work with you and the provider of the bursary to refund your registration if necessary.

Do I need to rush to get my registration in?

We have a cap on attendance numbers for NLS6 – past a certain point, we simply won’t be able to accommodate any more delegates. We strongly recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.

Will Early Bird registrations be extended?

When we opened registration, we stretched out the closing date for Early Bird registrations as far as possible. Due to the logistics involved in running an event so early in the year, we cannot extend the closing date for Early Bird registrations. And we do not want you to have to pay the full registration rate – so get in before 31 December!

I’m having trouble with this registration form. Can you help me?

Yes, we can! Simply email us at events@alia.org.au or give us a call on 02 6215 8222.

All my questions are answered! Except… Where do I sign up?

Head over to our registration page and secure your ticket now.
