The 2016 Annual General Meeting of the Association was held in July 2016. 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, from Adelaide to the Board. The 2016–2017 Board can be seen HERE. The 2017 AGM will be held in Adelaide on 16 July 2017.
We are pleased to announce that the Third Australian & New Zealand Solution-Focused Conference is planned for Adelaide, South Australia, 14–16 July 2017 at the University of South Australia City East campus. A conference organising committeeis chaired by David Hains and planning is under way. Details, keynote speakers and registration HERE.
There will be a Solution-Focused conference in Christchurch, New Zealand on 15 March 2017. This conference is NOT an AASFBT conference; however, the Board of AASFBT is pleased to support and endorse this conference. Keynote speakers are Elliott Connie (an exciting and engaging SF preseneter from the USA) and AASFBT President, Michael Durrant. Details HERE, or see the conference Facebook page.
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 and the two issues of Volume 2 were be published in 2016 (Vol 2, No 2 still to come). We hope to catch up in this next year. Financial members receive the journal as part of their membership. Vol 2, No 1 published recently and Vol 2, No 2 to come SOON.. Subscription details HERE.
AASFBT supports local "affiliate" groups. These groups of Solution-Focused practitioners provide opportunity for networking, support and seminars. The groups are most likely geographically defiined; however, it would also be possible for a group to include SF practitioners working in a particular context. Details on affiliated groups HERE.
The SF world conference will take place on 22-24 September 2017 in Bad Soden, Germany (near Frankfurt airport). AASFBT is a Supporting Organisation of the Conference — which means we are represented on the organising committee AND that AASFBT members will receive a discount rate for the conference.
