The Annual Conference

CCA’s signature professional development activity each year is the annual conference, featuring Australian and international keynote speakers. Our conferences provide forums for member networking and a platform for a discussion of key issues affecting the sector, along with future insights. The next conference will take place in Sydney from 13-15 November 2018 at the Mercure Hotel, with the theme "Taking the Lead: Building Community".

The 2017 Conference took place in Melbourne with the theme “Community Education: Investing in Our Future”.  The 2016 Conference, held in Sydney, had the theme "Innovation: What's Next for Community Education?”

Online Member Networking

The 'CCA Online' Moodle portal is a personal space, accessible only by members, via our website. This secure feature provides sector information, online discussions, and areas for specific groups, such as Executive Officers and VET Managers, and validation opportunities. It is a forum for cooperation and exchange of information, ideas and issues. CCA will be providing a new online member communication system in 2018. Contact us if you are not already connected.
