Tasmania’s community services industry has proven itself vital and adaptable in the face of unprecedented change.
TasCOSS Conference 2021 is an opportunity for us to come together, acknowledge where we’ve been and look to where we’re going. Inspired by diverse voices of change from across our state and beyond, we will explore how we as an industry can best support our communities to thrive into the future.
The two-day conference will bring together CEOs, board members, managers, direct practitioners and other industry professionals from across Tasmania to explore and acknowledge the essential work of the diverse labour force — both paid and volunteer — that make up our community services industry.
*** Preliminary program now available! ***
The TasCOSS 2021 Conference preliminary program is now available and features a thought provoking line-up of speakers who will explore the incredible adaptability displayed during COVID-19 and how the community services industry can harness these stories and opportunities to best support our communities to thrive.
