The AASFBT Board has resolved that — since there was no conference in 2015, no issues of the journal in 2015 and no AGM in 2015 — anyone who renewed (or joined) in 2015 will be financial until the end of 2016, without needing to pay any further membership fees. If you have not renewed for 2015/16, you can do so HERE.
The Annual General Meeting of the Association was held on 20th July. The Board of the Association for 2016–2017 was elected and the financial statements received — which showed the Association to be in a financially healthy state! We particularly welcome David Hains, from Adelaide to the Board. The 2016–2017 Board can be seen HERE.
We are pleased to announce that the Third Australian & New Zealand Solution-Focused Conference is planned for Adelaide, South Australia, 2123 July 2017 at the University of South Australia City West campus. A conference organising committee has been established (chaired by David Hains) and planning is under way. Details here SOON.
The JSFBT is an international journal published by AASFBT for the international Solution-Focused community. Two issues of Volume 1 (dated 2014) were actually published in 2015. The Board has decided to skip 2015, and the two issues of Volume 2 will be published in 2016. Financial members receive the journal as part of their membership. Subscription details HERE.
The Board is finalising arrangements to support local "affiliated" groups. These independent groups of Solution-Focused practitioners will provide opportunity for networking, support and small meetings or seminars. The groups will most likely be geographically determined; however, it would also be possible for a group to form to include SF practitioners working in a particular context. More details soon.
The SF world conference will take place on 22-24 September 2017 in Bad Soden, Germany (near Frankfurt airport). Details HERE.
