Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August 2022

In conjunction with Destination North Coast NSW, who are assisting with support for the region following COVID-19 and the recent devastating floods, we aim to hold the Surf, Sand & Soundwaves' 10th Anniversary again at Mantra on Salt Beach, and it's thanks to our wonderful volunteer presenters and sponsors and your support that we have been able to continue holding this annual event. We're hoping to see everyone back this year and attending in person. An interesting and varied range of interstate presenters share their passion and knowledge, so join us for a weekend of learning and some socialising as you catch up with old friends and make new ones.

The event will run all day Saturday and on Sunday morning. Stay over and join us for a cocktail after Saturday's program. Bring the family or linger longer - the area has so many beautiful sights and fun activities to experience.

Two streams, 1.5 days...

Please note: the sessions may raise employment issues or issues regarding patient interactions that could be subject to legal proceedings making it difficult to separate into presentation and separate question and answer sessions. As a result we not be recording this stream.
