DTAA Forthcoming Events

DTAA Events

The DTAA runs regular professional development events to enable our members to keep up to date with the latest developments in DMT and related areas of professional knowledge. We aim to offer sufficient hours of PD to assist all members to reach the necessary hours for professional development per year. Most of our events are also open to other interested professionals. Members who have suggestions for PD topics they would like the DTAA to address, or who would like to offer a PD on a topic of their expertise, should contact PD Committee Convenor Jane Guthrie on admin@dtaa.org.au.
