2020 Leadership Forum

Building on the inaugural Principal’s Retreat in 2018 and our successful 2019 Staff Conference in Brisbane, this year NEAA will be offering a Spiritual Leadership Forum. This event will be open to Principals and Leaders in Presentation schools and communities throughout Australia. The forum will be held at the Rendezvous Hotel at Scarborough Beach, 14kms from Perth CBD. With support from BBI – The Australian Institute of Theological Education, NEAA has secured two expert theologians who will each present two sessions. The forum will also be an opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues from Presentation schools and communities from throughout Australia as well as enjoy some time taking an early morning walk along the iconic Scarborough beach or a swim in the Indian Ocean.

Theme: Spiritual Leadership
Rendevous Hotel Perth - Scarborough
Dates: Friday 13 March - Saturday 14 March 2020
