A key reason for CaSPA electing to have its Board Meetings in a different Capital City each term is to allow CaSPA Directors to meet face to face with Principals from all jurisdictions.
In fact CaSPA now organises its meetings to coincide with scheduled meetings of the local jurisdictions, so that Principals do not need to give over more time in their busy lives to meet with the CaSPA Board.
For this reason, CaSPA was in Hobart from March 11-13, as this was the scheduled meeting time of the local Catholic Principals Group - CPAT. Besides providing an outline of CaSPA activities at the national level, there was also time to explore local issues.
In this case the Tasmanian group were very keen to hear of Enterprise Bargaining Arrangements around the country. CaSPA Directors were able to provide very helpful guidance on this matter and to suggest possibly resources that the Tasmanian group may wish to utilise.
The next schedule meeting with a State group will be in Sydney on the eve of the ACSP Confernce 5-6pm on May 21st at the Sharton on the Park.
