Letter of Invitation

On behalf of the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW), the International Council on Social Welfare (ICSW), the International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW) and the local Organising Committee, we are delighted to invite you to Melbourne, Australia for the Joint World Conference on Social Work, Education and Social Development from 09-12 July 2014.

This Conference will bring together practitioners, researchers and educators from around the world who are engaged in Social Work and Social Development. The Conference will continue the work of the Global Agenda, first set in Hong Kong in 2010 and then continued in Stockholm in 2012. Together with the Australian Association of Social Work, the Australian Council of Heads of Schools of Social Work, and the Australian Council of Social Service, we are planning an inspirational program in true Australian tradition.

Melbourne, Australia, is one of the world’s most liveable cities – the undisputed events, sport and food capital in the country. It is a modern, multicultural metropolis of over four million people, famed for blending business and pleasure. We hope you will take up the many opportunities for you to enjoy Melbourne and its surrounds and all that is has to offer.

We look forward to greeting you at the Joint World Conference on Social Work, Education and Social Development in 2014.
