St Laurence CEO, Toby oConnor, said "the transition to consumer directed choices for people with a disability is bringing significant and complex challenges to participants, their families, providers and the National Disability Insurance Agency.
"I am excited about the potential of this national event to bring together key stakeholders to assist us to collectively evaluate, learn, inform, understand the challenges and the opportunities the NDIS
