Dear


Happy New Year!

After the events of last year, we are looking forward to a great year ahead as we embrace and get on with our new, adjusted way of living, working and playing.

As many of you have or are returning to the office, we see an increase in face-to-face events as confidence grows. The news of a Covid-19 vaccine becoming available is also encouraging.

Here at National Office, we are busily planning for our National Conference which is looking at being a hybrid of both face-to-face and streamed speakers as we continue to navigate the uncertainty of international travel. This year's conference will be at the Sydney Olympic Park 12-15 September and will a great way for us all to reconnect in a safe and enjoyable manner and do what we as parks and leisure professionals love to do, share our experiences, work, projects and the ideas that make our communities great places to live.

Continue to stay safe and I wish you all the very best for 2021.

Sincerely, Mark Band, CEO
