Request for Expressions of Interest to host the 2022 Annual Conference

Dear OCIES friends,

We are pleased to share with you some important OCIES announcements.

Request for Expressions of Interest to host the 2022 Annual Conference

2022 marks 50 years of annual conferences of OCIES and its predecessors ANZCIES and ACES.  We are seeking expressions of interest (EoI) from Members and their institutions to host the 2022 Annual Conference. We encourage collaborative approaches which may involve more members from more than one institution. EOI’s that demonstrate the ability to provide online and face-to-face participation options and an enactment of the relational vision of OCIES will be looked on favourably. Hosting of OCIES conferences is generally guided by the bylaws used in the past; however, the executive is happy to negotiate this, given the Covid -19 pandemic.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at or approach one of the Executive Committee members if you have any questions. 

EOI’s must be submitted to by 30 June 2022.  

Warm regards,

OCIES Executive Committee
