ADF Member and Family Transition Seminar

ADF Member and Family Transition Seminars help you and your family prepare for your transition into civilian life. You and your family are welcome to attend at any time during your ADF career. Seminars are held nationally where you'll have access to information on topics like:

  • transition support and administration
  • future employment
  • finance and superannuation
  • Department of Veterans' Affairs
  • veteran and family support services
  • ADF Reserves.

Over the past six months, DCO have been working to change the current ADF Member and Family Transition Seminar based off feedback from members and their families.

At the new seminars, you can get information relevant to your circumstances by visiting our expo floor or attending information sessions. You’ll be able to choose sessions depending on your interests, and talk one-to-one with representatives from a wide range of stakeholder groups who will provide you with information on transition and the transition support available to you.

If you are an ADF member and would like to attend a seminar register your attendance through CAMPUS. ADF families and support people can register their attendance by emailing Transition National Support Team ( including the PMKeys number of the ADF member they are supporting.

For enquiries regarding the seminars you can email Transition National Support Team.
