Convocation ceremonies will be held concurrently at multiple locations across the states, territories and New Zealand; eligible Fellows are invited to attend the ceremony at an available location of their choice.
Convocating Fellows receive complimentary registration at the RACS ASC 2021. Due to the cancellation of the RACS ASC 2020 and thus the 2020 convocation ceremony, eligibility to convocate has been extended to those who have received their Fellowship within the last 6 years and have not previously convocated. Once your registration is received further information will be sent to you regarding the ceremony.
