The National Indigenous Drug & Alcohol Conference 2014 will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Melbourne, from the 4th of June to the 6th June 2014.
Based on the theme What Works: Doing it our way, NIDAC 2014 aims to highlight approaches that are working to reduce the harmful effects of alcohol and other drugs and its associated harms among Indigenous Australians.
Invitation from the NIDAC Chair, Associate Professor Ted Wilkes
As the leading voice in Indigenous drug and alcohol policy advice, the National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Committee (NIDAC) is proud to host the 3rd National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Conference (NIDAC 2014).
We anticipate this event will be the largest gathering of Indigenous people working in the drug, alcohol and related fields to take place in Australia.
As the Chair of NIDAC, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in this important event taking place in Melbourne.
The Conference aims to bring Indigenous and non Indigenous workers and stakeholders together from across Australia to celebrate the great work that is being done to address harmful Indigenous alcohol and drug use. There will also be plenty of opportunities for you to share and meet with others. The Conference will also see a number of Australia’s most prominent leaders in this field presenting over the 2 1/2 days. I am sure you will find the range of presentations, workshops and opportunities for discussion enriching and practical.
I encourage you to register for what promises to be a wonderful and rewarding experience and I look forward to seeing you in Melbourne in June 2014!
Who should attend?
It is expected that many of the delegates who attend the Conference will predominantly be those who are working to address harmful Indigenous drug and alcohol use.
