SPEVI 2021 Online Conference - Registration now Open!
This event will run 18-19 January 2021.
The Conference theme ‘Celebrating Change’ refers to events during 2020 that forced drastic changes in all aspects of our lives, particularly in the education sector where delivery of education and support services switched to a remote, often online environment. Our online conference will allow us to look back at a year of change and then forward to what we've learned and how our students can continue to receive the best possible educational experience in a changing environment. All current SPEVI members will enjoy FREE Conference registration!
Come join us in January for a memorable, entertaining and informative experience!
Visit the SPEVI 2021 Conference website for more information and the online registration form.
