Welcome to the 2016 VPA Annual Conference Website


The 2016 VPA Annual Conference theme ‘Growing Our Culture and People’ will explore useful concepts and effective techniques to understand and improve your workplace culture. The aim of the conference is to empower you to engage positively and lead your team, contributing to the social, emotional and professional wellbeing of your staff.


How can you create cohesion and harmony? What are the ‘unwritten ground rules’ that can help you develop and foster a healthy culture?


We invite you and your leadership teams to join us for two dynamic days of professional learning, networking and collegiality.
