Dear Friends and Colleagues
May the season bring you joy, happiness and hope.
It seems that the end of 2018 arrived suddenly. It has taken all of us at DANA HQ by surprise.
Even as we launch into the full festive mode of celebrations, decorations and holidays this time of year is also a time for reflection and gratitude. Our relationship with you, our DANA friends and colleagues, is top of mind, so thank you for your contribution to, and ongoing support of, DANA.
I would especially like to single out the efforts of the hard-working DANA Committee. Without them there would be no DANA. Through their dedication DANA has achieved a lot over the last twelve months from the highly acclaimed ‘It Starts with Us’ Conference, held in Melbourne in July to the unprecedented number of DANA scholarships awarded to members for their ongoing professional development.
We are delighted that the ranks of Credentialled Drug and Alcohol Nurses / Advanced Certified Addiction Nurses continues to grow. This process provides an opportunity for each of us to validate our experience, knowledge and expertise. If you haven’t taken the next step towards this, make this your resolution for 2019.
Be sure to join us on August 16th 2019 at the Swissotel in Sydney for the annual DANA Conference.
Let me take this opportunity to wish you the very best for the Festive Season. Be happy and stay safe!
