A key part of the WACOSS calendar is our yearly conference.  We run two different conferences; A WACOSS Conference, which is a large scale, sector-wide event, and the Community Relief and Resilience Conference, which targets the emergency relief sector.

The biannual WACOSS Conference is a unique opportunity to provide professional development and training for the hundreds of volunteers and paid staff working across WA who provide regular support and assistance to those most in need in our community.

Traditionally our conference is topical, and relevant to the community needs of the day, with previous conference themes including ‘WAy Ahead – Leave no one behind’, ‘The Difference We Make’, and ‘The Big Picture’, as examples. It is a large scale event spanning over 2 – 3 days and aims to strengthen the community sector as well as stimulate a sustainable, vibrant sector that can be responsive to the needs of the community.

In alternate years, WACOSS delivers a Community Relief and Resilience Conference (formerly known as the Emergency Relief Conference).  This event reflects the reality that the need for stability, security and sustainability in meeting basic needs are interrelated, and also shaped by other factors influencing wellbeing.  This conference is run specifically for those within the sector working in community resilience, emergency and community relief.

These conferences are essential to the sector in ensuring that strong relationships are formed, opportunities for collaboration are identified, and passions are kept ignited.
