A message from AADANT to members and stakeholders

Hello AADANT members, partners and stakeholders,

I am writing to provide an update for you in relation to current AADANT staffing.

As you know, Mr Peter Burnheim has held the Executive Officer role of AADANT for the past few years, and he leaves us at the end of this week. Pete has provided exceptional leadership in collaboration with his team, and has been a strong advocate for the AOD sector in the NT and the communities we support during his tenure.

Much has been achieved during his time in the role, yet there is still a great deal more to do within a context of minimal resourcing. We would like to thank Pete for his dedication to the role, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours, and his new role in Tennant Creek.

The Board and I have the utmost confidence in the team, who might be small in number but continue to have significant influence and impact, and we thank the team for continuing their excellent work, particularly in the lead -up to our upcoming conference. WE hope you are planning to join us for this event:

The Board is currently recruiting to our future AADANT Executive Officer, and we hope to announce an appointment in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your continued support of the AOD sector and the work we do together in the community.

Kind regards,

Professor James Smith
