About this event

Each year hundreds of representatives from civil society gather at the ACOSS Conference to engage in a meeting of minds.

The ACOSS National Conference provides a platform to discuss the policy and practice needed to address poverty and inequality in Australia, to strengthen our organisations and build an inclusive society. It’s the annual meeting place for community sector CEOs and senior level representatives, community leaders, senior government officials, business leaders, researchers, social entrepreneur, grassroots advocates, campaigners, and anyone with an interest in social justice and public policy.

The ACOSS National Conference follows a unique format. We avoid traditional plenary addresses and instead all sessions take the form of a facilitated conversation between a dynamic panel of thought leaders and the ACOSS conference attendees. We engage expert facilitators to help power the discussion. Live conference streaming, an interactive conference app, and a live Twitter feed ensures that the conversation extends beyond the physical space and engages thousands of civil society contributors across Australia.
