    Dear Colleagues,

    Please find attached the agenda for the upcoming Speech and Drama meeting to be held at Federal Office on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st April, 2018.

    I believe Queensland has a strong contingent of experienced representatives attending which is lovely to see, and I look forward to catching up with you there.

    I am presenting an overview of the state of play in Queensland and am seeking input from you regarding what you’d like to see covered in the presentation.

    Federal Office are also looking to confirm the number of people attending, and would appreciate you advising them of your attendance by emailing Fia Walsh at

    If anyone wants to raise anything about the agenda or would like the opportunity to present or facilitate a session, they are most welcome to contact Bernard Depasquale directly at

    Thank you in advance.

    Kind regards,
