I attended this conference yesterday in Merredin and drove up in the morning but had to get back to Perth last night.

There seemed to be pretty good turn up, ~200+ people including partners, for the lunch and opening session followed by presentations by a Sexologist from Curtin Uni, and Owen Catto from Regional Mens Health, Both speakers were very funny

Then after a "serious country style arvo tea" there were two concurrent sessions on "Shed Operations" and "Fund raising and support".
I was one of 3 speakers in the shed operations session where there were over 100 persons present.

Congrats to the organising committee for putting on such a good show. I'm not sure about other state conferences but for any WA members thinking of going to these events I think they are well worth the effort.
