My favourite JASA function is the Weekend Conference. I really like the relaxed atmosphere at a low-key but functionally good location, where we have time to meet new JASA people and also to listen to top-class presentations and participate in discussions about the theme topic.”
This is a very special event in the JASA calendar. It allows members to indulge in an entire weekend of Jane Austen learning, laughter and friendship. It provides the opportunity to really get to know other members of the society, to exchange ideas, watch film extracts and to explore the life and works of Jane Austen more fully.

JASA’s 2018 weekend conference will be held at Pavilion on Northbourne Hotel in Canberra from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 July 2018. Join us as we

Weekend Conference Update
Both the Pavilion on Northbourne and the Adina Serviced Apartments are currently holding a block of rooms for delegates attending our conference at a fixed agreed rate (please see below), however this block will be lifted on 13th June when the rates will return to the standard rate available on the day of booking. We have been advised that this will be in the vicinity of $200 – $220 per night.
The conference has been extremely well subscribed and bookings must close on 15th June, so please be mindful of both these points if you still intend to book.
