Please do let me know of any future news, opportunities, and recent publications via email, which I can then include in the fortnightly newsletter. For ACNZSN to work as well as it can, it will be great to receive contributions from its supporters 🙂 I would also encourage you to subscribe to its blog, and follow and/or like its social media platforms on Facebook and Twitter.

As some of you might have also noticed I do not repeat information in the fortnightly newsletters as I find they get too unwieldy. So, please do look back on previous newsletters on the ACNZSN website for opportunities especially that still have upcoming deadlines, if you have not already seen them 🙂

Best Wishes,

Dr. Jatinder Mann

Creator and Manager of ACNZSN
