2016 AFCC CONFERENCE INFORMATION

 

Make a Noise and Make it Clear!

 

You are invited to the 2016 conference, “You’re the Voice ... of Celebrancy”.  Join us for a jam packed program interlaced by this theme. You are the ‘Voice’ that your clients come to for inspiration, ideas and understanding.  You are the professional ‘Voice’ in the ceremony that guides the way, celebrates the occasion, understands where dignity and solemnity are required and bestows applaud and humour appropriately. 

 

The Power of the Word is a responsibility that you hold and deliver.  Our conference aim is to provide speakers, workshops, fun and the tools to make your business and your Voice sing.  Besides, we love the words of John Farnham’s hit song … “we know we all can stand together, with the power to be powerful, believing we can make it better!”  What a perfect theme for a National Conference of Civil Celebrants!   Be ready, because this theme will thread its way throughout the program … both educational and social.  You will surely want to sing!

 

Get ready to be empowered! Click on the picture below and see you at The Stamford Grand Hotel, Glenelg, South Australia.
