Message from the CEO
Lots going on this month……..
· Trevor Campbell has completed our Client Consultation needed for the Strategic Plan and we have received some great feedback. Many thanks to Trevor and all who participated in this process. Now that this is complete we can further develop and complete our Strategic Plan and then get started on our Business Plan
· The Communications Plan mentioned last month is progressing very well and the Headway website is going to get some much needed attention….look forward to this!
· Planning for the 2014 Camp is underway and it is most likely to take place in November….more on this later
In the next few weeks I will start to send out information regarding the NDIS, making sure that you get the right information ahead of time. The NDIS is not going to be rolled out in Gippsland until sometime between July 2016 and July 2019 at which time the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) will be informing us all what steps you and we need to take in preparation for the transitioning of payments to clients.
…..and we have had a couple of Board members visit the carer groups and Social Support groups this month, with the plan for these visits to continue as a means of improving communication.
Our new Chair Michael Klein is settling in nicely in his new role and looking forward to the business and challenges ahead ……
Regards Marilyn Alborough CEO
