Hi

In 2003 Parks and Leisure Australia (PLA) established a national interest
group for 'Recreation Specialists in Disability/Specific Populations'. This
group aims to cater to those individuals involved or interested in leisure
and recreation in areas such as disability; rehabilitation; mental health;
community health and welfare; ageing; and populations with specific needs.
Parks and Leisure Australia has been very committed and enthusiastic to
support the needs of professionals in this sector and recently ran one-day
seminars in Melbourne and Sydney to a variety of professionals in the field.

In NSW we are seeking expressions of interest from those interested in being
part of a core group to facilitate future development/direction of the NSW
Division of PLA. We are keen for people from a variety of work and skill
backgrounds to be involved, to have their say and take on any role they feel
they can commit to - however great or small. We want to develop an effective
and positive organisation in this area of the recreation field - none of us
have time to waste! We aim to further develop services and support among the
many people involved in this sector of the recreation field by:

*                    Supporting, developing and discussing issues that are
particular to professionals' in this segment of the recreation industry.
*                    Assisting in the maintenance of professional networks
*                    Facilitating positive development and recognition of
the leisure profession
*                    Facilitating process planning to ensure progress of the
division

To get the ball rolling we have scheduled a brainstorming session on the 7th
October.
This session will aim to:

*        Identify/clarify the role of the Recreation Specialists in
*        Disability/Specific Populations NSW division
*        Identify strategies for its effective operation
*        Identify key events/dates/aims
*        Identify the core strengths of the division, available resources
and how these can be best utilised.

Our meeting details are as follows:

WHEN:           Tuesday 21st October
AT:                  The University of Sydney
Cumberland Campus
East Street Lidcombe
TIME:              12  2
