The Board of the Association has taken the difficult decision to postpone for a second time our 2021 Annual Conference at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley. It is highly unlikely that events such as a Conference will be allowed or appropriate before the end of this year. The new dates for the 2021 Annual Conference are Sunday 10th – Wednesday 13th April 2022.
Due to the Annual Conference being postponed until Sunday 10th - Wednesday 13th April 2022, the Spirit of ANZAC Awards have also been postponed until Tuesday 12th April 2022. More information to come in early 2022 in regards to nominations re-opening but for those who have already sent in nominations these will be transferred to the new date.
The Board of the Veterans Benevolent Fund (VBF) met last Saturday 27th March in Parkes and approved record levels of funding for important veterans programs across NSW. So far this 2020/21 financial year, almost $200,000 in submissions have been approved by the VBF Board. The most recent decisions include a second year of funding for the Veterans Wellbeing Summit, which last year assisted over 9,000 veterans and their families with counselling, mentoring, advice and information to assist with managing PTSD and other mental health challenges faced by ex-service personnel who have transitioned out of the ADF.Find out more
