LEAD PDA offers two types of membership: Training Membership and Association Membership. For both types, membership runs annually from 1 July to 30 June. You can join at any time during the year. Members of LEAD Professional Development Association Inc enjoy many benefits:

Special pricing to all of our workshops, forums, seminars, conferences, training and more!

There is much evidence around on the return on investment when employees access professional development and training. Employees who can access relevant training and professional development are more motivated, have a lower staff turnover rate and achieve a higher rate of outcomes. With our member’s pricing starting at just $93.50 for a one-day workshop, becoming a members of LEAD makes good business sense. Most
of our events are held in western Sydney, saving you time and travel expenses.

Priority access to our most popular learning opportunities!

While we pride ourselves on bringing you the latest in evidence-based practice methods, we know that some of our core topics continue to draw high levels of participation. As a value add for all of our members, you will have pre-release access for our most popular topics (such as Accidental Counselling, RBA, Trauma Informed Practice, Case Notes and workshops presented by our international topic experts, such as Viky Reynolds). Early access minimises the potential for you to miss out.

Access to specialised resources!

We have produced, and continue to produce a wide range of resources to assist you in what you do. Examples include Policy templates, Guides to support Aboriginal workers, Evidence-Based Practice Resource Kits, Diversity in Practice Resource Kits and many more.

Access to Member Only Events!

We regularly hold events for Members only. This provide you not only with the opportunity to hear from a Guest Speaker or participate in a Forum, you also have the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals from your sector.

Becoming a member of LEAD PDA is a good business decision. Find out how to join below.
