6th of June to the 14th in Australia.
National Directors of Bangladesh and India were invited by the Regional Director Sue Walker, to get a formal training and develop a strategy for the National Directors strategic alliance, due to be made in 2010.
An opportunity to get a first hand, and more so a ring side view of the Award Programme organisation in Australia; where there is a federal model very much like India. Both countries have had the programme going for near 50 years and have always worked closely in training, development and growth of the Award Programme in the Asia Pacific Region.

This was a maiden effort and a good one; familiarized us with our duties and prepared the National Directors to adopt the best practices and build the Award Programme. From an understanding of the international perspective, to the nuts and bolts of the operation and finally the development of a strategic plan.
