ACPET WA at CDAA National Conference
Monday, April 13 2015
I was pleased to have the opportunity to present at the CDAA National Conference at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Perth last week – speaking on one of the more provocative topics on the conference agenda: Dubious Courses from Dodgy Providers: facts vs fiction. Careers practitioners from across Australia engaged with the topic, and made their concerns, questions and opinions known throughout the presentation. A common theme was an expectation (shared by members themselves) that our organization will take a strong stand on providers who operate outside of ethical standards, as well as giving support to stronger consumer protection measures and regulatory action with those who fail to comply. The work that the ACPET Board, our CEO, ACPET committees, members and staff are doing in this regard does not always reach the public arena, however I was pleased of the opportunity to talk to CDAA members about the steps we are taking, and to highlight the excellent work that is being done by members - too often lost in the media hype. My key message – the underlying strength, value and performance of the sector, public and private, that represents the vast majority of the work being done nationally and internationally by our industry and across the sector. Congratulations to CDAA on a successful 2015 National Conference.
