The Having a Say conference is a highlight for members of Loud and Clear. Due to Covid, the conference was cancelled in 2020. In February 2021, they realised that they would not be able to travel to Geelong for that year’s conference.
The first Loud and Clear Qld Conference was held at the Alexandra Headland Surf Life Saving Club in October 2021. You can read all about that here.
The 2022 Loud and Clear Qld Conference was held at the Alexandra Headland Surf Life Saving Club in October. It was a huge success.
