Dear Members, 

On behalf of the AIE Board of Directors, I would like to extend a warm invitation to AIE & AFDA Members, staff and industry colleagues to attend the 2017 Australian Institute of Embalming Conference which will be held at Bayview on the Park Hotel, Melbourne, Victoria. As this will be the 21st Conference year for AIE we thought it was appropriate that the Conference theme is ‘Coming of Age’. During the two days of the Conference, you will hear best practices of highly experienced speakers, recommendations for tackling your daily challenges and be proactively involved in all the education sessions. Delegates can meet old friends and colleagues and create new relationships. For everyone, it is an opportunity to visit Melbourne, and to spend some time enjoying new sights and experiences. The social program includes an opening night dinner during which the winner of this year’s AIE Scholarship will be announced, a very special mystery dinner and of course on the last night there will be the traditional Chairman’s Ball.  
If you have never been to an AIE Conference or have not attended in a while, I encourage you to make plans to join us this year. For those of you who regularly attend the Conference, thanks for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you again.  
Don’t delay – register today!
