It is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend our inaugural conference under the banner of Leading Age Services Australia Queensland (LASA Q). This event will now be known as the Queensland Leading Age Services Conference and replaces the Aged Care Queensland State Conference held in March each year.
As a member of the Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) Federation, which is the only truly national age services peak group, we are a unified voice for retirement village operators, residential and community care, housing and age service providers. LASA Q provides a strong, confident and inclusive representation for the entire age services sector. More importantly, it is a collection of equals committed to a brighter future for the age services industry and the older Australians who rely upon it.
The Queensland Leading Aged Services Conference 2013 will be held at Jupiters, Gold Coast and will run from Wednesday 20 March – Friday 22 March 2013.
The theme for the 2013 conference is ‘The Power of One – One Purpose, One Voice, One Passion’ in line with the LASA Q vision. This conference will be the most important industry event this year, bringing together over 500 age service professionals, leaders and specialists from across Australia.
I would encourage your organisation to take up the opportunity to attend and participate in this valuable industry event. The speaking program will address the key industry issues through a format of plenary and specialist concurrent sessions and forums. There will be ample opportunity for networking and a comprehensive trade exhibition showcasing the latest products and services.
I look forward to welcoming you to the conference in March 2013
