From The Chairman

Dear Colleagues,

Once again we have held a busy and successful National Conference and Competition at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth from 4-6 July and my congratulations go to all our competing universities for another inspiring event.  Our teams continue to develop and implement projects addressing key issues including disadvantaged youth, indigenous development, homelessness, disability, refugee services and environmental awareness, as well as teaching programs for senior citizens, and a big focus again this year on minimizing food waste.

Over 380 people attended our event this year at the Sofitel, including more than 200 students, 25 faculty members, over 30 observers and volunteers, and 99 judges from several companies, including partners, alumni and academic leaders.

You will find more information about our many activities, including our workshops later in this Newsletter, and photos from the Conference can be accessed through the following link. https://photos.app.goo.gl/KPjKkyygNWG7kMzp2

The World Cup will be held this year in London from 26 –28 September , and information about this event is on the Enactus International website http://www.enactus.org  . If you are able to attend, either as a judge or an observer and cheer our winning team, The University of Sydney to victory, I know you will find it an exhilarating experience. Please contact Judy Howard at jhoward@enactus.org and she will be able to provide more details.

Thanks again to all of our stakeholders for your on-going support of the program here in Australia.
