Apis held our all annual staff conference in October at the Fairmont Resort, Leura, in the Blue Mountains. It was a very productive two days, in a beautiful part of NSW. The purpose of the conference is to share information relevant to the business, share individual experiences and have fun! The weather was kind to us and we got to enjoy sessions of bush walking, abseiling and golf. Special thanks to Ashley Fell, Head of Communications at McCrindle, who updated us with some very informative statistics on social and demographic trends. Very relevant to our reform work in aged care, welfare payments and social policy.
