National Conference

Every year, ACFID runs a national conference which brings together hundreds of people from its membership and the broader development sector. Our national conference combines learning, accountability and agenda setting. Each year, a theme is chosen of strategic importance to ACFID Members. You can look over past ACFID conferences below. 

This year, we are doing things differently - it wont be just ACFID's conference. Go to Oceania Connect below for more information.
