About the Event

This event is dedicated to celebrating the work of Social Workers, providing an opportunity to network over breakfast and listen to our keynote speaker, the Hon Kyam Maher MLC who will reflect on the life and work of his mother Viv Maher and the way this influences him today. Viv, a respected Aboriginal Elder, was a social worker who worked in regional areas and was awarded Life membership of the AASW.


The Hon Kyam Maher, MLC grew up in Littlehampton in the Adelaide Hills prior to moving to Mt Gambier. He graduated with Law and Economics degrees from the University of Adelaide before practicing law for the Crown Solicitor’s Office in SA. In 2002, Kyam took on the role of Chief of Staff to the then Minister of Regional Affairs, Aboriginal Affairs and Correctional Services, Terry Roberts. Kyam went on to serve as State Secretary of the Labor Party in SA before entering the Legislative Council in 2012. In 2014, Kyam took the role of Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Fisheries. A proud South Australian, Kyam has spoken passionately on a wide range of issues including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs, equality, the importance of science and the challenges facing regional and country communities.
