We would also like to remind you all that you will need to renew your DEAN membership for the 2014 calendar year.*

Membership of DEAN is open to anyone employed in a NSW/ACT TAFE or University, whose role is wholly or partly concerned with the provision of disability support and services. Non-DEAN members and other interested professionals outside the tertiary education sector are, however, still very welcome to attend PD Days. You can now join DEAN for $30 per year, to receive the discounted registration rate for PD days, access to the member's only area of the DEAN website and many other benefits. For more info, go to: DEAN Membership

*Those members who joined in November or December of 2013 will have their membership extended for all of 2013 and do not need to rejoin.

We look forward to seeing you at our next PD Day for 2014. Please visit the site for further information about this day.
