ACWA National Conference

ACWA’s national conference, which is held every two years, marks a significant coming together of child and family welfare experts, caseworkers, sector leaders and child protection advocates to examine policies and practices that are making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families, and to identify ways we can do better.

Our conference program incorporates a stimulating mix of presentations, panel discussions and masterclasses, supported by a dynamic line up of international and local speakers. There are plenty of social highlights as well, providing delegates valuable opportunities to network, renew connections and celebrate the work of our sector.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances related to COVID-19, our 2020 conference has been postponed until further notice. We look forward to keeping you updated regarding plans for our next conference in due course.
