Celebrate the start of the festive season at our Annual Christmas Luncheon. Network with your industry colleagues over a two-course lunch and beverages as we look back on the year that was. We will also be fundraising for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics Australia.
Joining us this year is Alison Frame, Deputy Secretary of NSW Department of Planning & Environment. Alison will provide some cheer highlighting the key focus for the Department into the new year.
The renewed focus on strategic planning and IHAPs are welcome helping our industry drive supply, growth, and affordability in NSW. However, challenges remain for infrastructure funding, new taxes and the suspension of the missing middle. The agenda for next year is already looking good with new strategic planning statements, drafting LEPs, community participation plans, and a standardised DCP.
This event is a sell-out each year, book early to secure your space.

Angelman syndrome (AS) is a rare neurogenetic disorder that affects approximately one in 15,000 people – about 500,000 individuals worldwide. Children and adults with AS typically have balance issues, motor impairment and debilitating seizures. Some individuals never walk. Most do not speak. Disrupted sleep cycles also can be a serious challenge to the individual and caregivers(s). Individuals with AS require continuous care and are unable to live independently. They have a normal life expectancy. Life is very challenging for people with Angelman Syndrome today, however hope is here. Scientists believe that AS has the greatest potential for being cured when compared to other neurogenetic disorders.
FAST (Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics) has a plan well underway to achieve a cure for those individuals. FAST is working closely with scientists and leading the way to achieving positive results by ensuring that all possible avenues for treatment and a potential cure is being explored.
The FAST board consists of a number of Parents of children with Angelman syndrome, with 95% of all money raised and donated, directed at funding research into a treatement and a cure.
