COMMUNITIES IN CONTROL CONFERENCE 2011
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND:
Learn what's what
This year's topic is Our Changing Communities and Community Organisations. You have to be part of the change, you have to hear about the change, you have to lead the change.
Learn who's who
Hear from some of Australia's best thinkers and speakers (and doers) - people like SIMON MCKEON, 2011 Australian of the Year, MIRIAM LYONS, Executive Director, Centre for Policy Development and ELIZABETH BRODERICK, Sex Discrimination Commissioner and Commissioner responsible for Age Discrimination – great speakers and great minds creating new agendas.
Learn what's next
Stay in front of the pack by hearing form the minds that are dedicated to thinking about our future – people like LINDA LAVARCH, Chair of the Australian Government's Not-for-Profit Sector Reform Council, HUGH MACKAY, Australia's greatest psychologist, social researcher and writer on what makes us tick and PHIL RUTHVEN, Founder & Chairman, IBISWorld telling us what is around the corner in numbers and trends.
Once a year, lift your head up from the tangles and see the view from the peaks
National and international speakers – including a surprise orator for the Inaugural Joan Kirner Social Justice Oration.
Meet people who know your problems – and may have their own Solutions
Join 1300 other people from across the country who believe in the power of community. In between the speeches there's making contacts, catching up, networking, and meeting knowledgeable and sympathetic new colleagues.
It's a chance you can't afford to miss
Communities in Control is THE LEAST EXPENSIVE conference of its type around. No other community conference offers you access to this calibre of speakers for this tiny cost. We work with partners to ensure we can keep the price as low as possible, so as many people as possible can come along.
Don't Burn Out - Get Fired Up
Communities in Control inspires and enlivens and energises community group workers, volunteers and supporters. It'll remind you what it's all about and why what you do matters so much.
