AADANT Symposium 2020

4 Nov. 2020 to 11 Nov. 2020
Alice Springs and Darwin

The Association of Alcohol and other Drug Agencies NT (AADANT) has decided to cancel the 2020 two-day conference scheduled for 16-17 September 2020 due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19.

In lieu of a two-day conference, AADANT will be holding one-day symposiums in Alice Springs and Darwin in November 2020.

We know services in the AOD sector are busy places to work. We are inviting you to attend this one-day symposium to network with colleagues, learn about the services outside of the AOD sector that may be valuable to your work, and understand the work of organisations you may not interact with regularly.

We will arrange short practical workshops for attendees during the symposium and will continue to offer the static display area for continued collaboration and information sharing.

Building on the theme of working together, AADANT will focus these symposiums on the services that can enhance a client's experience and improve their quality of life by reaching out to existing providers in your area.

We will also endeavour to explore pandemic planning, lessons learned through the COVID-19 pandemic and explore research and evaluation in the NT.
