We are excited to invite you to tropical Far North Queensland for the TEM 2014 Conference ‘Rainforest to Reef – Adapting to a Changing Environment’.  The Conference will be held on 31 August – 3 September at the Cairns Convention Centre in the tropical city of Cairns, located in a World Heritage Area and bordered by ancient rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef.

This conference will explore how the tertiary education sector can adapt and grow in a constantly evolving environment, with changing social, economic and environmental landscapes.  Like the Rainforest and the Reef, organisations that willingly embrace change and adapt to new environments will not only survive but prosper into the future.

TEMC 2014 offers delegates the opportunity to learn not only from formal speakers and presenters but also to network with colleagues and engage with sponsors and exhibitors from all areas of tertiary education management.   This will be an ideal forum to stimulate ideas and consider the way forward whilst building on the strong foundations of the past.

Cairns is a vibrant city and is renowned as a premier tourist destination.  It is located in the only place in the world where two world heritage areas meet – the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest.  The city offers a mix of activities and cultural experiences which can be enjoyed in a balmy tropical atmosphere.  With an excellent social program, delegates are invited to enjoy what the region has to offer and create a lasting memory of TEM 2014.

On behalf of the organising committee we hope you will join us in Cairns.
