SPA-SA/NT holds monthly ‘SPA Review’ nights at which books and other materials that have strongly influenced members are outlined and discussed. An innovation for 2017 will be a 5-min ‘Book and Blog Alert’ segment when certain key papers, postings or other information is reported and links provided. Note that volunteers to present this Alert at the May and June nights are still needed. Members, friends and other members of the public are welcome, and there is no charge. Refreshments are provided.

 

For more details contact SA-NT branch president Peter Martin (0417 776 494, poitgm@hotmail.com), or secretary Dr Michael Lardelli (michael.lardelli@adelaide.edu.au).
