Our Team at SPDL

Planning Day

The success of SPDL relies on a strong team philosophy in working together and in recognising the incredible contribution of our volunteers.

In having a clear strategic direction, achieving the day to day administration of SPDL to meet the needs of our clients by delivering our services reliably to the community.

An AGM is held each year in November. The AGM provides SPDL as an incorporated body with the opportunity to report our achievements for the year and to complete the requirements of the Incorporations Act for more information view SPDL Annual Reports view here.

This is accomplished by:
