Last week I caught up with PLA Ambassador Susan Alberti AC, what an incredible champion of women in sport and the health of our community.  Also this month we held a full day workshop for our Advisory Group to discuss projects and priorities for the year, more on this soon..

The PLA2019 program has been announced and we have an inspirational line up of speakers in store.  Make sure you don't miss out on the Early Bird savings and register by the 15th July.  I  also hope you will join me in celebrating the winners at the Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner at Crown Perth, 29th October.  

For those in the southern states, rug up and stay warm, if you are in the north I hope you are enjoying the sunshine.
