New South Wales Participants:

If there is sufficient demand, we will be chartering a bus for NSW participants to and from the conference. This will involve an extra cost (much less than a flight) for the participant. Please indicate on your application whether you would be interested in traveling on an AUJS hired coach.

For many years, PTS has received the outstanding and consistent support of the JCA and the JCA Dave Burnett Leadership Fund, which was established to honour the memory of one of our community's most passionate leaders, and a rising star in politics.
