2013 SES AWARDS NIGHT – UPDATE 1

Since the formation of DFES from FESA, there has been the loss of two levels of volunteer representation.  These were the cessation of the FESA board and SES Consultative Committee. The SES Consultative Committee had a responsibility for the SES Awards Function and the SES Volunteer Awards.  To ensure that the SES Awards Function and SES Volunteer Awards continue, the SES Volunteers Association (SESVA) has picked up the responsibility to ensure continuity of these important activities.

The SESVA has been meeting with DFES to assist in the planning of the next SES Awards night.  The SES Awards Night is now going to be held in conjunction with the DFES Volunteers Conference to be held 20 to 22 September 2013.

The Awards Night will be Saturday 21 September at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

A number of issues from the feedback surveys are being addressed including more seating, a reduction in music levels during parts of the evening and keeping the awards presentation part of the evening, to about 1 hour. 

The association is planning to form a sub-committee to work with DFES Media to administer the SES Awards. The sub-committee will consist of a DFES representative, SESVA representatives and a number of SES Volunteers from around the state.
