The Australian Communities Forum

Wednesday, October 07, 2015

The Australian Communities Forum is happening again in Sydney and Melbourne 2015!

The ACF exists to help organisations understand and connect with their communities. From local, staff, constituent, membership, customer and special interest communities, this forum is focused on how to build, shape and engage communities in all their diversity.



Whether you’re part of a community-based organisation, a charity, a government agency or a commercial organisation with a community focus, the Australian Communities Forum will deliver the latest information in an interactive format, with innovative local examples, and the sharing of great ideas.

At the one day Australian Communities Forum you will hear:

  • Results from the Australian Communities National Research study
  • Case studies of innovative community engagement projects
  • Practical, best practice workshops providing innovative strategies to equip and empower
  • Keynote sessions on volunteer engagement, motivating teams, generational change, segmentation engagement and effective public and media communication strategies.

Stay tuned for more information on guest keynote speakers, the program and more!

Keep up to date with The Australian Communities Forum 2015 on Facebook.

Welcome to our blog...

We have a passion for research that tells a story, that can be presented visually, that brings about change and improves organisations. And we hope these resources help you know the times.
