ASU Conference

final woman3 

Save the date: Once again we present our annual two-day Delegates Conference, to be held Wednesday 12 & Thursday 13 October at Rydges on Swanston in Melbourne. ASU delegates from all industries across Victoria and Tasmania are invited to register your interest in attending.

Please note that registration for this event has now closed.

Due to the popularity of this event, attendance is strictly limited.  Unfortunately, registration DOES NOT guarantee you a place at Conference. You will be advised if your attendance has been approved when you receive confirmation from the ASU, relevant paperwork will be forwarded to you at that time. Of course failing to register will exclude people from attending.


Our keynote speaker will be Richard Denniss. Richard is an author and the Chief Economist and former Executive Director of The Australia Institute. He is also highly regarded as a public policy commentator. We are delighted that Richard has agreed to join us along with well known AFL writer, television and radio personality, Sam Lane. We will also again be hosting a supper on day one of Conference, details of which will be provided to attendees in your confirmation pack.

Your chance to win

Our theme this year is Delegates in Action which is a focus on recruitment. We are initiating a delegate incentive program relevant to the forums and workshops of our event and in the lead up to Conference you are asked to participate in a recruitment drive. Prizes to the value of $1000, $500 and $250 donated by our partners will be awarded at Conference. Learn more about this opportunity here.

Travel and accommodation

If you are travelling from Tasmania or regional Victoria, you will have the chance, when registering, to advise if you require the ASU to arrange flights and/or accommodation on your behalf. Those residing in metropolitan areas do not qualify for accommodation.
