Event description


Postponed: In response to current Government and Departmental advice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are postponing the Transition Conference in Brisbane on Wednesday 25 March 2020. We are tentatively aiming for 7 July, depending on how the situation progresses.

Working together for veteran wellness

NOTE: This is an informational event for representatives, including advocates, welfare officers and program staff, from ex-service organisations or other not-for-profit veteran support organisations.

Department of Defence is inviting Ex-Service and veteran support organisation representatives to attend the 2020 Transition Conference in Brisbane. This conference is a part of the broader 2020 Transition Conference Series being held across locations in Australia. See the ADF Transition Eventbrite page for a full list of events and locations.

The Transition Conference Series will offer you the opportunity to hear about our transition programs, how transitioning members are supported and the important linkages between Defence, other parts of government and the civilian community. You’ll hear from groups across the Department of Defence and our partners in the Department of Veterans' Affairs and Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation.

Department of Defence is committed to ensuring the best possible experience for members transitioning from the military. We understand that ex-service organisations play an important role when a member and their family is transitioning to civilian life.

We encourage you to come along and extend this invitation to anyone in your organisation who supports our current and former ADF members including advocates, pension, program and welfare officers.

Be sure to register by 20 March 2020.

This event is separate to the ADF Member and Family Transition Seminar.

In line with the advice of the Chief Medical Officer and the Australian Government, Defence is currently reconsidering upcoming events to protect the people involved. The latest advice is that outdoor events with less than 500 people and indoor events with less than 100 people may still go ahead, provided that social distancing and hygiene principles are followed.

This includes:

  • covering your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue
  • disposing of tissues properly
  • washing your hands often with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand sanitiser where not available
  • not touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
  • avoiding physical contact with others.

Do not attend if you are sick, or if you have been overseas or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the past two weeks. People who are in a higher risk category such as those with a chronic illness and the elderly should seek advice from their healthcare provider on how best to manage their health risks during this time.
