On behalf of the Australasian Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine and the Organising Committee I extend a warm invitation to attend the 2018 AusACPDM Conference to be held from 21-24 March at Cordis, Auckland (formerly The Langham, Auckland) New Zealand.

The theme for 2018 is ‘Empowerment and Partnership’ and will demonstrate the partnerships that make us strong, well-informed, empowered clinicians. It is also to make new partnerships and to empower developing nations. All of us can think of the partnerships that we have and consider how we as individuals can enhance these partnerships, make new ones so that we can make that difference for the child who we are treating, and ultimately give them the gift of empowerment.

We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Auckland and the land of the long white cloud.

Dr Kathryn Edward, Conference Convenor
