NDCO eDIN newsletter 43rd edition now available

August 2017 edition of eDIN news now available: http://www.ndcovictoria.net.au/LiteratureRetrieve.aspx?ID=176548

Spring has sprung, the buds are busting, jack frost is packing his bag and the magpies are sharpening their beaks. Must admit that spring is my favourite season of the year. As for the last month of winter, things have been busy despite the cold.
My key takeaways for the month; firstly, the opportunity to deliver more workshops in regards ‘Pathway Options’ and ‘Assistive Technology’ is allowing refinement of delivery re style and content. I look forward to presenting more of these in the future. Please don’t hesitate to give me a call if you need me to deliver a session to your group.
Second mention goes to the NDIS and the fact that the world still spins as the rollout continues. It was good to catch-up with Merri Health this month to learn more about the Early Childhood component of the Scheme. I look forward to their participation in the local networks.
Lastly, a big welcome to all the new NDCO’s across the country-side. Seems to have been a big change in personnel across many regions lately. (Which also means a big farewell to all those that have left). I very much look forward to the re-invigorated team at the next national conference in October.

Another busy month as  the mid year term break approaches. I will be having a few days rest that  I am very much looking forward to despite the colder weather. Having completed the annual NDCO reports it’s nice to know I will be returning to a  revised set  of planned activities to focus on.

This month saw a strong move forward with the Victorian NDCO’s fully realizing the intent to have an all of Victorian State advisory committee. The inaugural meeting is scheduled for mid July and I look forward  to bringing you my reflections on the achievements of this  initiative throughout 2017/18.

July is a lot about NAIDOC, make sure you check out the Koorie catch up page for some of the local events happening near you.

It is also that time of year  when there seems to be an influx of staff changes in various program areas. To all those, too many to name here, that are moving on, thanks for your input and contributions to the sector. For all the replacements, I look forward to meeting you soon  and I hope this newsletter finds its way into your in tray sooner rather than later.

Sincerely, Mark Cottee. NDCO region 15 Northern Victoria
