Village Manager National Awards
So up up and away we went last Wednesday for a two night stay on the sunny Gold Coast. Plane, train and personal chauffer got us safely to our accommodations with the most fabulous view from our balcony awaiting us.
Both Genevieve and myself were attending a one day conference on Retirement Village Living prior to attending the National Awards Dinner later that night organised by Leading Aged Services Australia (LASA). Timing is everything and it was fabulous to have Sigrid Adams, VSA Director and her partner able to fly in for the Awards Gala Dinner to join the only 2 in the room from WA. Genevieve and I agree there were some key take away’s from the conference and certainly new initiatives that we feel would be of benefit to Leederville Gardens as a Village collectively and for residents individually. We look forward to introducing some of these in coming months.
By now I believe most of the Village population is aware that Genevieve was announced as a finalised and was recognised on the night for her incredible efforts and work at Leederville Gardens. Unfortunately she was not announced the winner on the night however as I said last month, quite frankly she is a winner in our eyes.
It was a privilege to be a part of your evening Genevieve and again congratulations on being announced as a Finalist.
