Sports Medicine Australia has been successful in our funding application to the Australian/Malaysian association.
This means we can support malaysian nationals to attend this year's conference. Depending how many requests we get, we can do anything from fully funded down to a rego waiver. Thus far we have one fully-funded delegate who qualified because he had submitted an abstract (later withdrawn because of lack of funds - lucky him!)
As time is short, this will be a case of first in, best dressed. If you have any Malaysian colleagues, collaborators, contacts - please let me know. If they submit an abstract, they will get a poster.
NBNB This also applies to any Malaysian nationals working or studying in Australia.
The only requirement we make is that they attend a Safer Sport program train the trainer workshop on the Sunday after the conference.
Apologies for multiple sending as I have sent to groups.
All the best

This is a bit like winning the lottery because the short lead time means we have to make fast decisions.
If you are able to attend, the grant will cover your conference registration, return airfare Adelaide to Brisbane and your accommodation for 4 nights at the Ibis hotel in Brisbane, taxi fares in Brisbane, all lunches and dinner Thursday (River Cruise) and Saturday (Conference Dinner).
You will need to pay for:
* Taxis in Adelaide
* Dinner Wed/Fri
NB The other condition of attending is that you also attend a workshop on Sunday 18 (day after the Conference) with the other Mayalsian delegates. This will be a train the trainer session to enable you to teach the Sports Medicine Australia sports trainer course.
Information about the Conference can be found at www.beactive09.com
Let me know as soon as possible if you wish to attend as we are allocating the funds on a first come first served basis.
