The WIA Hybrid AGM and Virtual Conference is being held on Saturday May 7, 2022.

The morning consists of the Hybrid Annual General Meeting and the afternoon is the online / Virtual Conference with the theme Antarctic Gateway and will be coming to you from Hobart Tasmania.

For those who remember "Pre-COVID" times, the 2020 WIA AGM & Conference was to be held in Hobart Tasmania with the theme - Antarctic Gateway.

Well spin forward two years and the Virtual Conference is being streamed from Hobart Tasmania on the afternoon of May 7, 2022.

It consists of an afternoon of brilliant presentations all about different aspects of Antarctic history, adventure, research and challenges.

Our keynote speaker is Professor Elizabeth Leane from the University of Tasmania with a presentation on Sidney Jeffryes and the role played by wireless in the Australasian Antarctic Expedition (1911-14)

We have Rex Moncur VK7MO who was Director Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) between 1988-1999 with his experiences as a Director of the AAD - the good and the challenging!

We have Dr Andrew Klekociuk from the AAD who is giving us a fascinating presentation on the atmospheric studies and research happening in Antarctica.

We finish with Peter Yates VK7PY and Kim Briggs VK7KB both from the AAD with a presentation on
Antarctic communications challenges and review.

These presentations will all be professionally streamed using zoom for those registered participants.
