Over Wednesday March 2 to Friday March 4 the 2005 Community Compass WA conference on volunteering will be held at the Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle.
Hosted by Volunteering WA, the event will bring together individuals and organisations with a shared interest in the future direction of strengthening the community through the advancement of volunteering.
With a theme of "Navigating the World of Volunteering" the conference will be about existing structure, new opportunities, networking and action, especially in regards to state and national programs or agendas. Issues to be explored and debated include what WA is contributing and where the critical "gaps" are.
Plenary session topics will be on citizenship/relationships, partnership/entrepreneurship and leadership/ownership.
Keynote speakers at the conference include UWA Perth International Arts Festival artistic director Lindy Hume, UWA professor of plant conservation biology Steve Hopper, WA auditor general Des Pearson, Australian Capital Territory MLA Mary Porter and Volunteering Australia chief executive Sha Cordingley.
Registrations for the event can be made to Volunteering WA for $360 for full registration.
