2018 SPUN Conference, Save the Date

This year the conference is in Sydney from Wednesday November 21 through to Friday November 23.

 This year’s conference will be around the theme of ‘Integration’, and we are delighted to announce that we will be offering our SPUN conference in co-location with Civica’s Local Government user conference. We will be looking at integrating parts of the conference and hope to be able to offer you some special events that Civica will be hosting in addition to our usual training and user presentation features. If you would like to do a presentation or have some requirements for the training sessions, do let a member of Executive know.

 SPUN also conducts its’ AGM during the conference, and this year Executive will be tabling an updated constitution in addition to a number of Executive positions becoming vacant, including President, Secretary and ordinary member, so think about becoming involved in SPUN.

 This year’s conference will be held at the Novotel Many Pacific to cater for the larger conference groups. The hotel’s website is available at and accommodation details will be available in due course. We look forward to seeing you all in Manly.
