U3A conference 'an outstanding success': committee president
"THE U3A Network Queensland and Asia Pacific conference held in Brisbane City Hall on the 28th- 29th May was an outstanding success," said Rhonda Weston, president of Network Qld and the organising committee.
The conference was opened by the Lord Mayor Graham Quirk with speakers from as far afield as Portugal and the UK plus many more local presenters, including 19-year-old Sophie Ryan, who received a standing ovation for her inspirational talk "starfish, teacups and how to change the world".
Delegates were treated to a very special couple of days and found the conference to be a great opportunity to meet with other U3As from around the world and Australia, exchange ideas and make new friendships.
A very informative and enjoyable time was had by all who attended the conference in the iconic surroundings of the newly renovated Brisbane City Hall.
