NACAA XXX

The 2022 National Australian Convention of Amateur Astronomers, that was to be held in Melbourne by the ASV, was held fully online over two consecutive Saturdays; Easter Saturday, April 16th, and one week later, April 23rd.

The Astronomical Society of Victoria still 'hosted' the event, by facilitating the speaker link-ups and the live broadcast of the event.

See the Programme page for links to recordings of the sessions.

The Annual General Meeting, which is usually held on Easter Saturday, was held via Zoom on June 18 2022.
