The AASFBT Board has resolved that — since there was no conference in 2015, no issues of the journal in 2015 and no AGM was held in 2015 — anyone who renewed (or joined) in 2015 will be financial until the end of 2016, without needing to pay any further membership fees. If you have not renewed for 2015/16, you can do so HERE.
The Annual General Meeting of the Association was held on 20th July. The Board of the Association for 2016–2017 was elected and the financial statements received — which showed the Association to be in a financially healthy state! We particularly welcome David Hains to the Board. David, from Adelaide, will be chairing the Conference Committee for the 2017 conference. The 2016–2017 Board can be seen HERE.
Due to an organisational glitch, there was no Association conference in 2015. We are pleased to announce that the Third Australian & New Zealand Solution-Focused Conference is planned for Adelaide, South Australia in July or August 2017. A conference organising committee has been established and plan ning is under way. Details here SOON.
The JSFBT is an international journal published by AASFBT for the international Solution-Focused community. Two issues of Volume 1 (dated 2014) were actually published in 2015. The Board has decided to skip 2015, and the two issues of Volume 2 will be published in 2016. Financial members receive the journal as part of their membership. Subscription details HERE or see the Conference's Facebook page.
The Board is finalising arrangements to support local "affiliated" groups. These independent groups of Solution-Focused practitioners will provide opportunity for networking, support and small meetings or seminars. The groups will most probably be geographically-determined; however, it would also be possible for a group to form to include SF practitioners working in a particular context. More details soon.
The SF world conference will take place on 22-24 September 2017 in Bad Soden, Germany (near Frankfurt airport). Details HERE.
