It is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend the Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs Council of Tasmania’s 2020 Conference ‘Courage. Change. Impact’, to be held at the Grand Chancellor, Hobart from 25-26 May 2020.

Choosing the theme of courage, change and impact was purposeful. Change is constant. Sometimes it is planned and sometimes not. Regardless, it often requires courage to overcome challenges, pitch a different approach or reshape a project. We want to not only showcase examples of best-practice but shine light on the people courageously driving change to deliver impact across the Tasmanian alcohol, tobacco and other drugs sector.

We have listened to your feedback, and we have reduced the cost of registration to ensure that as many people as possible can take advantage of attending this wonderful event. We have also responded to your calls for speakers who not only inspire and inform but arm you with the tools required to transform the ideas into action in your own workplaces.

There will of course be opportunities for you to hear from our own sector leaders, and when the call for abstracts open I encourage you to consider submitting one. We know that there are many examples of Tasmanian organisations delivering best practice programs that are courageous, driving change and making an impact. We also know of some individuals out there going above and beyond to deliver incredible outcomes – so when the time comes don’t be shy!

Some key dates to put in your diary:
–    NOW – registration open
–    NOW – Call for abstracts open

I look forward to welcoming you in May!
