2020 has seen some huge curve balls thrown at not only our community but life as we know it!
Determination though, is a huge part of the SMA community and we are determined to stay true to ourselves and have our conference here in Australia! Our best endeavours to hold this conference in May and October this year didn’t come to fruition, but they say third time is a charm, right? So, we have rescheduled the beSMAaware conference for 28-30 May 2021.
This is a conference built for you - the SMA community - and we would love to see as many people as possible come together to meet for the first time or catch up amongst friends. It is important for the community to feel connected with each other for ideas and peer support. The conference is open to not only those living with SMA but their extended family and friends, carers, support workers and healthcare professionals.
We have worked extremely hard in the background to source appropriate accommodation options and due to the large volume of those coming and there not being a huge number of accessible rooms, there will of course be some meticulous planning to get as many people accessible rooms as possible. We urge you to contact us early so we can work with you to find suitable accommodation. All accommodation bookings will be managed through our conference organisers, so the more notice the better please!
We are looking forward to seeing you all next year when we are able to get together safely, to learn, grow, let our hair down and celebrate the community that is SMA!
