CCA Conference features complete range of service providers

The Community Colleges Australia (CCA) Conference includes the most complete range of educational, resource and other organisational service providers ever featured at an Australian community education event: a record 17 organisations.

Platinum Sponsors

The Conference Platinum sponsor Coverforce Insurance Brokers manages the CCA CommunityGuard Group Insurance Scheme, which leverages competitive premiums for CCA members, tailored to meet the needs of our sector, eliminating unnecessary cover.

Founded in 1887, Ansvar is an ethical insurer, with all available profits going to charitable causes through programs such as their community education program.
