In 2019 the Society will support registration costs, accommodation and travel expenses, to a maximum total of $3,000, to support up to two Society delegates to attend Science meets Parliament.

Details of the event, originally planned for 13th and 14th August but now delayed , can be found at https://sta.eventsair.com/science-meets-parliament-2019/ Registration, which will become relevant for those selected, will be reopened soon. The cost is $675 for early career members and $1075 for general members. We hope to include at least one early career registrant in our two delegates.
