On behalf of the Association of School Business Administrators (ASBA) Board, I am delighted to welcome you back to the 2016 School year. I trust you have had an opportunity during the festive season to refresh, revitalise and reenergise for the 2016 year.
2016 is the Chinese year of the monkey. The monkey is a clever animal and is usually compared to a smart person - much better than the other way around! 2016 is also a leap year so we can squeeze another 24 hours into our already busy schedules!
During the course of the year, your Chapters will be hosting Professional Development Days and Chapter Conferences. The following Chapter conference dates have been set:
11 - 13 May 2016 Rydges Melbourne CBD
31 May - 2 June 2016 Townsville
