Save the Date: Professional Standards Forum, 11 April 2019

The Professional Standards Councils are launching a new twice-yearly Professional Standards Forum in 2019, to assist and encourage occupational associations in developing their self-regulatory capacity and to get the best out of operating Professional Standards Schemes. The first Forum will be delivered in Sydney on 11 April 2019 with the theme ‘Complaints as a Risk Management Tool’. The Forum will present Councils’ insights on associations’ strategic use of complaints data in detecting and responding to occupational risks, share leading practices from two guest panellists, and provide a practical risk management workshop for professional standards staff of occupational associations. The Forum will be repeated in Melbourne in November 2019.
