Centre Piece – August 2012

Centre Piece – Issue #1

Welcome to the Centre Piece – the Centre’s new e-newsletter.

We hope you find our monthly updates interesting – we will use the newsletter to inform you of upcoming events, introduce new research, highlight significant achievements, interview industry experts and much more.

This month we have featured an interview with Trish Earle from Gamblers Help, who will be conducting a training session in October, which we urge all to attend.

We also want to take this opportunity to acknowledge that today is Lynette’s final day at the Centre. She wants to thank everybody for their efforts during her time as CEO, and wish everybody the best for the future.

The staff thank her for the excellent leadership she has provided, and hope she enjoys the next stage of her career.

We hope you enjoy our newsletter, and welcome comments on the stories included.
