Message from the President-Elect

With less than six months until the new WPA triennium, it is important to begin thinking about how we can link the priorities of the 2021-2023  Action Plan with the current work of the WPA.


Under the stewardship of current WPA President, Professor Helen Herrman AO, WPA has focused on XY and Z.  

The new Action Plan will develop and build on these concepts as we focus on XY and Z.

Work has already commenced in some of these areas with the creation of task forces to XY and Z.

Examples of some of the work those task forces have been doing are below and we will continue to add to them in the lead up to the next General Assembly when we will accelerate this work, etc, etc.
