Western Australia’s most innovative, passionate, and eager to evolve, volunteering leaders will come together to share the skills and tools they need to advance volunteering in 2023 and beyond.

Join us as we Reimagine the Volunteering Experience.

The 2023 Volunteering WA State Conference theme is Reimagine the volunteering experience.

Merging Volunteering WA's priorities with the focus of the National Strategy for Volunteering - to focus on the volunteering experience - the 2023 Conference theme challenges volunteer leaders to reimagine how volunteers and volunteer practitioners experience volunteering in 2023 and beyond.

Over 200 delegates will join us on Tuesday 14 & Wednesday 15 November 2023 in Perth for two days (and three streams) of keynotes, discussions, and workshops analysing the latest volunteering research, trends, techniques, and case studies to help volunteer involving organisations make the greatest impact in the community.

Delegates will leave the conference with a new perspective of how to reimagine the volunteering experience, plus have post-event access to learnings and key takeaways from key sessions.
