National Men’s Shed Conferences
29 september – 1 October 2017
mantra on view surfers paradise
From humble beginnings, the 7th National Australian Men’s Shed Association Conference recognises the evolution of the Men’s Shed movement with a focus on grassroots shed operations and sustainability – to support the continued growth and success of your shed.
The 2017 Conference, themed Onwards and Upwards, will include traditional content about establishing Men’s Sheds, as well as a particular focus on operational matters including governance, financial management and best practices. Experienced shedders, professional service providers and the highly skilled AMSA team will present the conference streams.
The interactive sessions will encourage delegates to come together to share their lessons, talk in depth about experiences and discover ways to grow the success of their shed and the shed movement. Delegates will have the opportunity to mix business with pleasure through an exciting social program. Without giving too much away too soon, the conference dinner is unlike anything AMSA have done before and is an experience not to be missed.
