SACOSS AGM and Board / Policy Council Elections 2019

Join us for the SACOSS Annual General Meeting 2019, where will will be launching our Annual Report for 2018-19 and our "Working to Make Ends Meet" report on Low-income Workers and Energy Bill Stress.

The "Working to Make Ends Meet" report is unique in that focuses on the energy affordability challenges of households whose main source of income is employment, but who are still living below the poverty line. It traces the issues and challenges arising from being part of the under-recognised cohort which we identify as “waged poor”.

Conference: Building Social Infrastructure

Thursday, 5 March 2020 - 9:00am

SACOSS has developed a strong reputation for presenting exciting and engaging events that are forward thinking, on-topic, informative and rewarding. Our conferences are renowned for their lively discussions on cutting-edge topics, in addition to creating an environment in which delegates can engage in policy development and network with colleagues to share ideas and experiences. 

Unfortunately, our keynote speaker, Professor Emerita Gillian Triggs, has had to withdraw from this year's State Conference, titled 'Building Social Infrastructure: Opportunities for our sector in the next decade', due to her new role with the UNHCR. We are currently working on a suitable replacement for Professor Triggs and issue an update very shortly.

NEW DATE: Thursday 5 March, 2020
WHERE: Adelaide Convention Centre

Full program details will be issued shortly.

EARLY BIRD REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW OPEN

We look forward to sharing details of a new keynote speaker with you soon.
