In 2022, the Australasian Registrars Committee returns to Canberra where 30 something years ago, the organisation was founded. This conference celebrates the contributions that ARC and its members have made to the industry. Across about thirty sessions we will explore some of the successes, issues, and challenges registrars and collection managers encounter in our dynamic and ever-changing sector.

*The 2020 iteration of this event has been rescheduled to 2022 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Link to the original 2020 announcement is here .
