Our annual one-day conference on everything NDIS will come to all eight capital cities from July to August.

NDS will present you with our plan for the way forward to ensure a strong and sustainable disability services sector and an NDIS that delivers on its great promise to people with disability and their families.

With almost 1800 CEOs and senior managers attending last year, the NDIS Essential Briefing is fast becoming one of our most popular events.

At the conference, NDS experts will present on the local context by state; the latest news on the NDIS; pricing, planning and payments and Quality and Safeguarding.

The conference will also include a facilitated discussion, giving you a chance to ask your most burning questions.
