POSTPONED - Make an Impact | International Volunteering Conference 2020

The Australian Volunteers Program’s conference in Melbourne, Australia from 27-28 March 2020 has been postponed.


The Make an Impact | International Volunteering Conference 2020, scheduled to take place in Melbourne, Australia from 27-28 March 2020, will be postponed until early 2021.

We have made this decision in consultation with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to proactively postpone the conference due to the uncertainty and rapidly changing situation associated with COVID19. The health and wellbeing of our staff and delegates are our highest priority.

It is very disappointing to not be able to go ahead with the conference as we had planned. However, the conference is postponed, not cancelled. We hope to inform you of a new conference date soon and that many of you will be able to join us later in the year for what we know will be a wonderful event.

Because we are planning to hold the conference at a later date, we encourage all delegates to retain their tickets. However, if you would like a refund on a ticket you have purchased, please contact
