SA State Budget Night Briefing

Tuesday, 22 June 2021 - 6:00pm

What will the State Budget mean for the sector, and your organisation?

The SA State Budget to be delivered on 22 June will reveal the government's spending and revenue initiatives for 2021-22. Get the jump on the year ahead, and the post-budget commentary and analysis, by joining SACOSS and other member organisations for our State Budget Night Sector Briefing. 

On Budget Day SACOSS and many of our member groups will have people in the Budget lock-up all afternoon examining the detail behind the budget spin. By coming along to this (virtual) post-budget event, you can be one of the first to know the likely impacts for our sector. It will  provide a chance to contribute any insights, digest and deconstruct this year’s State Budget.

Please note this is a virtual event.
