Staff Updates

Daryl Schaefer finished up with the RAHS on the 21st December 2016.
Although Daryl’s tenure as the association secretary was over a reasonably short period it was probably one of the busiest in the ADBA’s history. Daryl handled the workload and frustrations leading up to the Global Dohne Conference admirably. Daryl’s professionalism and integrity is unquestionable and we wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.

OGA Creative Agency

In November 2016 the ADBA Promo Group attended a social media workshop conducted by OGA Creative Agency in Albury NSW. In attendance on behalf of the association was Nicole Luckraft, Karen Mills, Tanya Barton & John Nadin. This event gave a great insight into the social media platforms. The Promo Group also had a meeting with OGA in respect to our focus for the next 12 months. At the end of November OGA travelled to WA where video footage, documentary and photos were taken. This footage will be released on social media during 2017. A big thank you to Rachel Browne for coordinating and everyone who was part of this event.
