Be part of a nation-wide event which will advance the practice of Community Engagement and create better outcomes for communities across Australia. The Community Engagement Summit Series has been designed with the belief that contemporary, high quality professional development for engagement practitioners is the cornerstone of delivering even better outcomes for our communities in the future.

Message from our Co-chairs

We are pleased to officially launch the 2017 Community Engagement Summit Series. This program of events is the result of many years of planning, research and networking, and is designed with the primary aim of advancing community engagement across the country through quality professional development.

We are a young and forward-thinking organisation committed to delivering community engagement focused professional development events. We aim to bring engagement practitioners together to share examples, stories and case studies so we can all learn from each other’s successes and the challenges we face as we consult with our communities.

This is a dynamic and changing industry, with many new and exciting ways to plan and deliver community engagement. The Summit Series theme, Engaging Beyond, is reflective of this, and the events will showcase the most recent approaches to community engagement.

This will be a fun, interactive, workshop based learning environment with lots of excellent networking and idea sharing opportunities.

We hope you will join us to be part of this exciting series of events!

“Opportunity to focus on community engagement at an achievable level for local government”
