The Deaf Society added community education to its services with this merger

Deaf Education Network (formerly the Adult Education Centre for Deaf and Hearing Impaired Persons) was an experienced provider of Auslan courses and other community education programs. The Deaf Society was now a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and was able to expand its profile both in the Deaf community and the wider community.

In the photo on the right, the original Director of the Adult Education Centre, Michael Clancy, cuts the cake at the merger celebrations.
