Specialist ACT ATOD Executives Group
The Specialist ACT Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Executive Group is involved in the strategic development and implementation of key sector-wide activities for the ACT alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) sector in the ACT.
Meetings are convened regularly to support information-sharing at an Executive level, both between Executives of ATOD services themselves, as well as between Executives and ATODA as the peak body. It provides a space for key issues of collective interest to be progressed, as well as a means by which external stakeholders provide information to Executives by invitation to attend an Executives Group meeting.
ATODA gratefully acknowledges the input and support of members of the Specialist ACT ATOD Executives Group.
The Specialist ACT ATOD Executive Group Terms of Reference provides further detail regarding the purpose, roles and membership of the group.
