NDS is pleased to release the Conference Program (PDF 1.14MB, Word 35KB) for the 2012 NDS WA State Conference (previously Living in the West). The conference will be held on 8-9 November at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and will be a forum to consider and debate current practice and future directions for the disability sector.
The Conference theme, Signposting the Future, highlights a number of influences that are set to shape the disability sector into the future: person-centred thinking, the National Disability Insurance Scheme, workforce development and assistive technology.
Helen Sanderson of Helen Sanderson & Associates - who has led the development of person-centred thinking and planning in the UK over the last 15 years - will be a highlight. In addition, Liz Forsyth, Deputy Chairman of KPMG Australia, Dougie Herd from the NDIS Launch Transition Agency and Dr Kate Ellis from Murdoch University will present keynotes.
Guest speakers include Helen Morton MLC, Minister for Disability Services, Sue Ellery MLC, Shadow Minister for Disability Services and Senator Jan McLucas MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers.
Following Day 1 of the Conference, delegates are encouraged to network with their peers while enjoying canapés and drinks at the cocktail function.
Please join NDS and hundreds of participants from Western Australia and interstate as we discuss the trends and issues that will impact the disability sector into the future.
