Event description

Welcome the 2023 National Volunteering Conference hosted by Volunteering Australia.

The 2023 National Volunteering Conference is Australia’s leading event on the volunteering calendar. The conference provides a platform for not-for-profit leaders, volunteer management professionals, government and corporate representatives, academics and researchers, and volunteers to come together to address emerging issues of high priority.  

As the national conference, the event is dedicated to fostering an inclusive and open discussion on the future of volunteering and highlight practical and innovative approaches to reimagine volunteering in Australia. The conference is a key vehicle for all stakeholders to voice their priorities, hopes and challenges for the future of volunteering. 

The Future is Now

The theme for the 2023 National Volunteering Conference is The Future is Now. This theme will challenge delegates to explore how our actions today will build a better future for volunteering.

As we come together to launch Australia’s first National Strategy for Volunteering in ten years, this theme reflects that we need to implement change today to ensure volunteering thrives for future generations.

About the Program  

The program will include two full days of interactive workshops, keynote speeches, plenaries and opportunities to network, as well as a Conference Reception on Day One.      

The program is being designed to include practical, strategic and research-focused sessions. Innovative approaches to volunteer engagement will be showcased and we will hear from speakers with deep and diverse expertise from across the volunteering ecosystem.      

On Day One of the conference, the new National Strategy for Volunteering will be launched and there will be an opportunity to hear firsthand how the strategy will move from development into implementation.       

The detailed Conference Program is currently in development. We had an amazing response to the Presenter Expression of Interest process with over 100 EOIs received.
