Dear Colleagues,

IFSW Asia Pacific is looking forward to a great Regional Conference in China later this year. We trust as you make plans for the coming year, that these plans will include joining your social work colleagues from across the region at this event. Although the dates are tentatively set for late October please be aware these may need to be moved a little later due to circumstances beyond all of our control. We are working to confirm the dates before the end of February in order for you to have plenty of time to plan your attendance at this event. We will post the confirmed dates by the end of February or sooner if possible.

We look forward to your joining us in China to make this a great regional conference.

Mariko Kimura, IFAP Regional President
Rose Henderson, IFAP Regional Vice President
