Welcome to the 2023 National Volunteering Conference hosted by Volunteering Australia.
The 2023 National Volunteering Conference is Australia’s leading event on the volunteering calendar. The conference provides a platform for not-for-profit leaders, volunteer management professionals, government and corporate representatives, academics and researchers, and volunteers to come together to address emerging issues of high priority.
As the national conference, the event is dedicated to fostering an inclusive and open discussion on the future of volunteering and highlight practical and innovative approaches to reimagine volunteering in Australia. The conference is a key vehicle for all stakeholders to voice their priorities, hopes and challenges for the future of volunteering.
The Future is Now
The theme for the 2023 National Volunteering Conference is The Future is Now. This theme will challenge delegates to explore how our actions today will build a better future for volunteering.
As we come together to launch Australia’s first National Strategy for Volunteering in ten years, this theme reflects that we need to implement change today to ensure volunteering thrives for future generations.
Registrations are now open. Online $250 and In-person SOLD OUT. Further details below.
