SEPTEMBER E-News


Dear 

Planning is well underway for PLA2019 with only six weeks remaining. We have some inspirational presenters this year to challenge your thinking. PLA2019 will host thought leaders from across Australia and overseas and will focus on the importance of linking parks, open spaces and facilities to our health, well-being and sporting performance and talk about the fundamental need for good policy, planning and provision of parks, open spaces and facilities.

If you are travelling from interstate and haven't booked your flights, Virgin Australia have great deals on offer. Plus, there are huge savings on accommodation at the Crown Perth.

Also this month, make sure you don't miss out on your copy of the Australiasian Parks and Leisure Journal hitting desks soon and available online next week.  Also, Golf Australia need your help if you have a 5 minutes to answer some quick questions to help shape the industry.

I look forward to seeing you in Perth this October.

Mark Band, CEO
