Events coming up in March 2019

Every month I give you a heads up on events I am taking part in or events I think you would want to be aware of. 

Here is what is happening in March 2019.

Women's Rights At Work Festival 2019

This is a festival organised by the We Are Union Women group. 

The program can be found here and includes a lot of union member only events and a lot of open events running from today 1 March up until International Women’s Day on 8 March 2019.

I will actually be attending the conference portion of the festival on Tuesday, 5 March 2019 as a member of a six person delegation attending on behalf of the MEAA. 

You can attend as a union member and register via your union or as a non-union member you can email the organisers to attend. It costs $20 concession and $50 for full entry and runs for the whole day with a light lunch offered.

Inaugural Jill Singer 'Women In Media' Lecture

I have been asked to attend this event as a guest. I think it would be a useful event to attend to listen to Louise Milligan who will be delivering the lecture and to network with other women working in the media industry. 

I don’t know how much it will cost to attend at the moment but you can find out the details on the Women In Media website.

It will run from 6 to 8 pm on March 28 at the Iwaki Auditiorium at the ABC studios in Southbank, Melbourne. 

Media Law Training

MEAA will be offering Victorian MEAA members who need it a one day workshop in Media Law Training at the Melbourne MEAA offices. 

It will run from 9 am to 5 pm on March 30. The link for more information is here.

It will cost $250 for members and $500 for non-members.

Awards

Tasmania Media Awards

Entries close on 19 March. 

Entry fee is $85 for non MEAA members, free for members.

South Australia Media Awards

Entries will close in April.

Entry fee is $55 for non-members of MEAA and free for members.
