Advancing the common good
What is the ACOSS National Conference?
The ACOSS National Conference is the annual meeting place for the community sector to discuss the policy and practice needed to tackle poverty and inequality, and to build an inclusive society in Australia.
ACOSS has hosted an annual sector conference since 1960, creating an opportunity for key stakeholders across the social policy, service provision and welfare community to build a strong vision for the community sector and for social justice.
