SARRAH convened two strategic planning operations for the organisation:

  • The biennial National SARRAH Conference; and
  • The National SARRAH Summit held on a biennial basis in Canberra incorporating SARRAH strategic planning with parliamentary visits where SARRAH members have opportunity to meet with Federal Parliamentarians to act as advocates on behalf of rural and remote allied health professionals and the services they deliver to rural and remote communities.

Input received from Conference delegates through the recommendations process were used to inform and assist in the development of the 2004-2009 SARRAH Strategic Plan. The recommendations provided information to delegates attending the post-conference SARRAH Strategic Planning Workshop.  Recommendations that met the mission and strategic direction of SARRAH were also used to inform the planning for the National SARRAH Summit held in 2005.  

Recommendations from the Conference came from feedback / discussion / question time from plenary sessions, concurrent sessions and workshops during the course of the conference. The Chairperson at each session was asked to record any recommendations from their session and hand them into the Conference Secretariat following the completion of their session.

Conference recommendations were also submitted by delegates by direct input via the SARRAH Management Committee and Executive Officer.  All recommendations that were clearly written and signed by at least two conference delegates.
