The Australasian Radiation Protection Society (ARPS) runs an annual conference to ensure the radiation protection society remains relevant, and in tune with the changing needs of everyone in the industry.

It also provides an opportunity for conference delegates to:
  • Build and maintain relationships in a relaxed yet informative environment during the event.
  • Join in formal, and informal discussions that cover areas such as advances in technology, changes to legislation, and shifts in community expectations.
  • Learn what’s happening now in the industry and show your commitment to the sector and support the community.
  • Network through social events including the welcome reception, and conference dinner.
