A note from the CEO's Desk - December Issue
As we approach the final weeks of 2017 I would like to take this moment to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year.
This year has been extremely busy and eventful for HV. To our supporters, donors, sponsors, partners, volunteers and community members thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to the HD community, which has made this year the success that it has been.
As per usual, with your support and assistance we have achieved together a great deal in what has felt like a very quick year, including:
- Launched the inaugural Dance Fitness for HD
- Achieved accreditation with Australian Council on Healthcare Standards until 2020
- Launched May Awareness month – LightItUp4HD and LetsTalkAboutHD campaigns run in collaboration with our international partners
- Hosted the HV Gala Ball
- Attended the invite only National Disability Awards in Canberra
We have an exciting start to 2018 with Dance Fitness for HD in February and some exciting events to promote HD Awareness in May. Watch out for news and updates on these events via our website and Facebook in the New Year.
HV continues to review how the organisation best provides you with the information and support that is relevant to your needs. With this in mind we have created a user friendly, short 3 minute survey to understand your information needs. I would be most appreciative of your assistance and time in completing this survey.
Finally, I would just like to remind everyone of our office Christmas closure. The team and I will be enjoying a break from Monday 25th December 2017 and returning on the Monday 8th January 2018.
On behalf of the team, have a great festive season (eat plenty of chocolate) and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2018.
