Bangamalanha Conference postponed


Due to unforeseen circumstances TAFE Western has postponed this year’s Bangamalanha Conference in Dubbo.

Bangamalanha Conference coordinator Tenesha Bell said it was a tough but necessary decision to ensure the ongoing success of the unique three-day event.

“Unfortunately because of several factors that are beyond our control we have been forced to postpone the Bangamalanha Conference that was scheduled for October 26-28, 2015,” Ms Bell said.

“At TAFE Western we pride ourselves on offering the best learning opportunities and value for money education.

“The 2014 Bangamalanha Conference delivered on that, receiving extremely positive feedback from delegates for its information sharing and networking value. We felt if we continued with this year’s conference we couldn’t guarantee we’d provide the same experience.

“So the decision was made to postpone until 2016. This will enable us to ensure we continue to offer this truly unique and interactive attraction unhindered – enabling everyone to get together and share their post-school Aboriginal education, employment and services stories.”

Ms Bell stressed that this year’s conference was postponed and not cancelled, with longevity the key.

“We see the Bangamalanha Conference having a bright and prosperous future but in order for that to happen we must look at the bigger picture which is why we’ve reached this decision,” Ms Bell said.

“New dates for the 2016 conference will be announced shortly and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Ms Bell thanked all of the conference’s sponsors for their continued support.
