2017 Conference announcement and new steering committee members

APSTSN is very pleased to announce that the Biennial Conference 2017 will be hosted by Darrin Durant at the University of Melbourne and will be held on 5-8 July, 2017. Darrin’s eager engagement with APSTSN promises another exceptional event for our ever-growing network.

Congratulations to our newest Steering Committee members! The latest round of elections for the 2016-2018 has brought six new members to the Steering Committee:

  • Amy Fletcher, Aotearoa New Zealand
  • Gonçalo Santos, Hong Kong
  • Jap Tji Beng, Indonesia
  • Mai Suzuki, Japan
  • Rey Tiquia, Philippines
  • Yi-Tze Lee, Taiwan

Particularly exciting is that APSTSN now has active membership in Hong Kong and the Philippines. We are also very excited that New Zealand once again has SC representation. The committee extends thanks to the Steering Committee members who will be stepping down: Wen-Ling Hong (Taiwan), Aiko Hibino (Japan), and Irfan Prijambada (Indonesia). Special thanks to Wen-Ling Hong for her masterful organizing of the 2015 Biennial Conference in Kaohsiung, Taiwan and we’re looking forward to seeing many of you at the 2017 conference (details to follow).
