CHILD-MINDING FACILITIES AT AGCC 2018

We want to make AGCC 2018 as accessible as possible to all Geoscientists, including those with young children and who may need assistance with their care. The Steering Committee is investigating the possibility of having a child-minding facility set up at the Adelaide Convention Centre for the duration of AGCC 2018. The facility would be operated and managed by a licensed contractor and all arrangements would be made by parents with the contractor directly. It is intended to provide this facility on a cost-recovery basis.

If you are interested in this service, please complete the Expression of Interest form here on or before Tuesday 14 August. The decision on whether or not to provide this facility will be made based on the demand received via the Expression of Interest form by this date.
