Hi Jessica,

We now find ourselves heading into the winter season, the Federal Election has passed and Prime Minister, Scott Morrison has made clear his aims to place much of his focus on the NDIS.

Speaking of elections, an exciting opportunity is now open to NDP members, the National Disability Practitioners Divisional Committee are calling for
nominations in our 2019 Election.

We are also delighted to announce that as of 1 July 2019, all employees of NDS financial member organisations will also have the added benefit of NDP membership. Further details will be available soon.

Lots of NDIS news updates and free webinars are available this month so be sure to have a look.
