The Every Australian Counts Congress Champions will blog, tweet and post facebook status updates from the the Congress to keep the more than 12,000 campaign followers up to date with what’s happening at the congress.

Congress Champions must be able to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses.

The National Disability and Carer Congress is billed as the largest gathering of people with a disability, their families and carers in Australia, and offers attendees the chance to hear from Australian of the year Simon McKeon, ABC Ramp Up editor Stella Young, as well as politicians and disability experts.
