TACH Conference 2014 – the aftermath!
Well, the last ever TACH Conference is over! And what a huge success it was. The weather was perfect, despite the weather person trying to trick us with dire warnings of doom and gloom. The program provided some very interesting and informative material, but it wasn’t all serious – we all enjoyed ourselves! The beach-themed Conference Dinner was spectacular, as it always is, until John Hooper “wowed” us all with his interpretation of appropriate beach wear. Lots of talking, laughing, dancing, extra-curricula partying, and fun (and there may even have been a mankini…)!
The workshops and plenary sessions were very informative. Themes included models of community engagement, the importance of Neighbourhood Houses and Centres working collaboratively with other service providers, and Results Based Accountability taster – very timely given the imminent rollout of the DHHS Outcomes Purchasing Framework to the sector. And Brad Smith’s keynote speech was an emotional and inspirational way to finish the conference.
We are now planning and looking forward to 2015 – the first ever Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania Conference. See you all there!
Here are a few Happy Snaps for you.
