Decemberber 2009 Directors Editorial - 31 Dec 2009
Highlights for the month of December was packing up the office at 54 King William Street, Kent Town and relocating to 155 Holbrook’s Road Underdale. This involved setting up a whole new office to be operational within the first week of December and we are still in the process of settling in. Sofia ADAC Finance Officer went on maternity leave on the 18th with her daughter Isabella being born on the 23rd December.
The Director was invited to Melbourne to attend the planning meeting for the United Nations DPI/NGO annual conference. This will be only the 3rd time in its 63 year history that the UN has held the conference outside of New York. The theme will be “Global Health Challenges: Achieving the Millennium Development Goals”. This will be the largest gathering on NGO’s (approx 2,000 delegates) at a UN event and will be attended by the UN General Secretary, Australian Prime Minister, heads of organizations such as WHO, UNICEF and the World Bank.
