2020 Federal Budget – Panel Discussion
Join this 60-minute free webinar as sector leaders discuss what the budget announcement means for the social sector.
One week after the treasurer brings down this critical budget, Pro Bono Australia will bring you a webinar that features a three-person panel of experts from the community and not for profit sectors who will dissect the budget and its impact on the social sector.

The packs include the audio and visual recordings, slide deck, and a webinar book. The webinar book includes the session’s transcript with corresponding slides, the live chat stream and presenter notes.
