    It is so pleasing to see both government and non-government sectors participating in choosing the agenda and as delegates as well for after all, this conference is about sharing of information on successful Indigenous programs existing and being implemented all over Australia and encouraging interagency networking either at a local, state and national levels.

    Running two conferences in one location was only made possible by ICS’ versatility to offer ground-breaking double opportunities for delegates to attend two conferences with one registration. Australia has a wealth of talent in our Indigenous communities, striving to further enhance the quality of life and wellbeing nationwide. We do not have to re-invent the wheel to succeed which goes with the 2019 conferences’ philosophy of strength through interagency cooperation at local, state, national and even international levels.

    We encourage anyone interested in attending the conference to register early as numbers are filling fast. We’ve structured the registration in such a way that will save organisation's money while at the same time providing a great forum for frank and open discussion.
