VALA2022 – Bring IT On – Submission Portal Re-opened.

We had a very positive response to our first call for submissions with some outstanding and dynamic presentations accepted for both the Onsite and the Online programs and we will continue to build on this program curation over the coming months.

VALA recognises some of our community are experiencing challenging times and have not been in the position to consider making a submission for VALA2022. Acknowledging this and indeed, the changing world we are all in, VALA has extended the submission opportunity and has re-opened the portal for content.
