    10. Marketing and Membership New corporate livery Support of marketing for Australian conference New ALARA flier Marketing strategy drafted

    11. 2008 was a great year for learning. I started the year working on ALARA’s visioning and strategic planning process with Bob Dick and Iain Govan. Very energising. Simultaneously with taking on the role as Australian Vice President, I accepted the role of teaching in a remote Homelands setting in Utopia in the Northern Territory. There, I learned a great deal about inequality of educational provision. I’m back in Utopia now which is why I can’t be at the conference. Lack of Internet access, indeed the lack of a phone at my school, made my VP role in organising the national conference challenging. I learned a great deal about how to work remotely as a team with other members of the executive. Very uplifting. I’m looking forward to 2009 and to applying my learnings to support ALARA’s growth.
