Organisers of the 15th National Conference on Volunteering to be held in South Australia in September are calling for abstract submissions.

The National Conference will be hosted by Volunteering SA & NT on behalf of Volunteer Australia and will be held at The Hilton Hotel in Adelaide on September 4-6, 2013.

Organisers say abstracts that will be considered for presentations may take the form of papers, workshops or debates exploring new and innovative programs and projects that provide vision and leading edge developments for the volunteering sector.

Participants are encouraged to use highly interactive formats designed to encourage discussion and audience participation.

“We are seeking people who can inspire, inform and enthuse delegates with their powerful experiences, creative thinking and ideas on leading, partnering, building and/or sustaining the volunteer sector, organisations and/or people in a time of change that surrounds and at times engulfs the sector,” Volunteering Australia says.

  • Challenge thinking and assumptions from a top-down perspective

  • Create an achievable vision
  • Share their learning from their own experiences
  • Deliver a take home message or action for delegates

Previous experience in delivering conference papers will be highly regarded
