The Australian Communities Forum Program

Thursday, September 29, 2016

The Australian Communities Forum, taking place on Thursday 13th October 2016 is the nation’s one day event focused on delivering to not-for-profit organisations and community focused businesses the key demographic and social trends transforming Australian communities, and how organisations can best engage in these changing times. 

Held since 2012 this annual event provides compelling case studies, the latest research, practical workshops and importantly, great networking over morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. 

Held at the iconic Customs House at Circular Quay, Sydney, and commencing with a launch of the 2016 Australian Communities Report, this not to be missed event will equip leaders in community engagement with the latest insights into 21st Century Australian Communities.
