SHAME FILE – Shape up New South Wales!

Thank you for the many submissions of abstracts for the Conference. Since last week, the number of Queensland submissions that have been received has increased and fortunately we are no longer in the position of being shamed by Western Australia. New South Wales on the other hand appears to be falling way behind. Why are we not surprised by that? Visit the website to submit an abstract as well as offer your suggestions for the Conference Program by no later than COB Monday, 29th April.

Congratulations to this week’s winners of free Conference tickets

PeakCare was inundated with entries into our ‘Name the Queensland Icons’ competition. Congratulations to Caterina Schulz from Act for Kids, Emma Matthews who is also from Act for Kids and Jori Etuale for the Brisbane Emergency Response Outreach Service (CLA Inc). Your tickets are in the mail – metaphorically speaking.

Stay tuned for next week’s competition

Keep an eye on your inbox for an announcement about our next competition. Another three free tickets will be up for grabs!
