Generation Next recognises not everyone can attend our face to face events so we are trialling this new initiative to make information on critically important topics available nationwide via webcast. To maximise accessibility the webcast is free of charge.
Setting up and executing these webcasts entails considerable costs. Please consider helping us offset these costs by purchasing our handbooks. All proceeds from handbook sales are used to cover the cost of our free webcasts, non-profit events and research.
You must register before the webcast. Registration is FREE.
Once you are registered you will immediately receive a confirmation of registration by email. Please check this email to ensure that all your details are correct. A few days prior the event you will receive another email with the weblink and login password to access the webcast.
The webcast will be accessible from this webpage. Use the login password as instructed just prior to or at the time of the webcast. You will be able to login up to 60 mins prior to the webcast.
If you are having trouble with logging in or with the webcast itself contact our webcast helpdesk on 1300 797 794.
