You know why you should be at the Joint Australasian HIV&AIDS and Sexual Health Conferences. Now it’s time to convince your supervisor to provide professional and financial support. We can help. Here are suggestions on how to get your request approved.
Details: Review the Program and outline for your supervisor the sessions that would be beneficial to your professional growth and to the organisation. Create a list of short-term and long-term goals and find the sessions that would help you achieve them. Explain the kinds of connections and relationships you will be making at the event and how they will benefit your organisation.
Reasons to go: Bolster your request by explaining top reasons you should attend the Joint Conference.
- Focus on the Technical Benefits of education – focus on what you will bring back to your workplace not on how much you want to go. Technical benefits may include tools and techniques to improve your skills set, processes or best practices to increase productivity and efficiency, emerging and new technologies and advancements in clinical approaches.
- Networking – the opportunity to discuss problems and challenges that you are facing with your peers and industry experts, and being able to talk as an equal with policy makers from government and industry bodies.
- Cost Savings–book your registration early and you could save up to $100 on your registration. If you are travelling overseas to reach the conference, then booking your flights and accommodation early could also reduce costs.
- Post Conference Benefits – Deliver a short presentation to your colleagues, and share the speaker presentations you found most valuable to ensure they also benefit from your attendance – these are available on the conference website post conference. Popular sessions will also be available as webcasts.
