2018 COAT National Conference
7 - 8 June, 2018I QT Canberra, ACT

Conference Dinner

The 100th anniversary of the World War 1 Armistice will be held at the Australian War Memorial next year and in honour of that we have decided that it will make the perfect venue for the 2018 COAT National Conference Dinner.

The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive. The Memorial's purpose is to commemorate the sacrifice of those Australians who have died in war. Its mission is to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.

The Memorial ranks among the world's great national monuments. Sharply etched grandeur and dignity in its stylised Byzantine profile contrast with a distinctively Australian setting among lawns and eucalypts at the head of a wide ceremonial avenue, Anzac Parade. Kangaroos from nearby bushy hills occasionally add to the physical effect.The Memorial is more than a monument. Inside the sandstone building, with its copper-clad dome, selections from a vast National Collection of war relics, official and private records, art, photographs, film, and sound are employed to relate the story of the Australian nation's experience in world wars, regional conflicts, and international peacekeeping.

The 2018 COAT National Conference Dinner is an opportunity for all Delegates to network with like-minded professionals in a relaxed atmosphere while enjoying outstanding food served in one of Australia's National Iconic Monuments.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.
