Message from the ACE Western Australia President,

Dr Anne Coffey

At the ACE WA Committee we aim to broaden our resources and further develop our already successful offerings for educators in our state. Initially we were looking to have a committee and programme that were more representative of the various educational sectors, as well as their current issues and directions. As a Regional Branch we are very conscious of the need to be more informed and sustainable in our work by attracting recent graduates into our membership and committee.

Our work is most evident in our ongoing professional development opportunities for members, especially the ‘Hot Topics’ held each school term. We also endeavour to work closely with other educational organisations in order to strengthen education more widely. 

There are two annual, more formal events that bring many members together. The Fellows Dinner always leads to rich discussion and fellowship, while the Walter Neal Oration and Awards Evening provides an opportunity to hear from a leading educator on a topical issue, recognise longstanding ACE members and present the WA College Medal to an outstanding contributor to education.

We are always to looking to diversify and strengthen our activities, so if you wish to contribute to our committee and its activities in any way, please do not hesitate to make contact
