About the Conference

The inaugural North Queensland Volunteer Conference 2020 will be held in National Volunteer Week on the 22—24 May 2020.

The North Queensland Volunteer Conference (NQVC) is a conference style, weekend retreat for volunteers on the ground serving in local communities to be revitalised through inspirational speakers, practical workshops and networking with other volunteers.

“Conference participants will come away with a personalised action plan, resources and new supportive relationships to sustain ongoing revitalisation.”

Volunteering can at times come at a cost both physically and emotionally, impacting negatively on relationships with others and contributing to volunteer fatigue.  The North Queensland Volunteer Conference is an opportunity to be REVITALISED for the cause at hand. 

Take time to be REFRESHED, RESTORE vision for the future, and REEQUIP with practical tools to ease the workload.
