"On behalf of the Council of International Students Australia, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to support the 11th CISA National Conference in Darwin, Northern Territory. The conference is an opportunity to engage with international students in a series of discussions that furthers the developing international education sector; with a vision to secure the best possible future of international students.
The Council of International Student Australia (CISA) is the national peak student representative organisation for international students studying in every part of Australia.
CISA lobbies the federal government at a national level, peak education sector bodies, and interacts with international education organisations in other countries. The CISA divisions lobby the education providers, local/state governments and interact with campus-level student organisations on a state level.
Last June, about 1700+ people met online for our annual national conference. Attendees were from all around Australia and across the international education sector. International student leaders and industry leaders contributed to the conference as well, making it a success.
As you may know, with the pandemic, there has been a sizeable impact on projects, plans, discussions and communication with external stakeholders. Therefore we try our level best to complete the required work, as soon as possible, to be inducted and oriented to the role and align ourselves with CISA's ultimate goal: to be an all-inclusive voice for international students.
It is our pleasure to present to you this year's conference sponsorship packages. We now welcome your support with open arms. This document has been released on our website, so feel free to circulate it around your networks.
Should you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to contact me."
