Are you keen on attending this year’s National Landcare Conference in Melbourne but not in the position to cover the cost? Then maybe NACC can help you out.

NACC would like to provide limited funding to help up to three community members from the NACC NRM region to attend this year’s National Landcare Conference which will take place in Melbourne on from 21-23 September.

We especially want to help NRM-focussed community members who have made exceptional contributions in the region – towards protecting and enhancing biodiversity, promoting and implementing sustainable agriculture, or improved Aboriginal land management and protection of cultural heritage – to get to the conference.

We are confident that attending the conference will provide these local representatives an opportunity to share experiences and NRM learnings with people and groups from around the country, and to bring new knowledge back to their communities and the region.

What NACC is offering?

NACC is offering a subsidy of up to $1,000 to support a limited number of individual community members to attend the Conference.

The subsidy will include the cost of:

  • Conference registration (Early Full Registration $300) ­– This includes the welcome reception, access to all conference sessions, and the Landcare Award gala dinner. NACC will arrange registration to meet the early bird registration deadline.
  • Travel and accommodation costs of up to the value of $700 – These expenses will be reimbursed following attendance at the conference, subsequent presentation of tax invoices to NACC, and completion of a reimbursement form.

Note: All other costs beyond the $1,000 subsidy will be the responsibility of the individual attending.

Applications close 5pm Monday 25 July.

Any enquiries can be made to NACC’s Regional Landcare Facilitator Stanley Yokwe on (08) 9938 0105 or Stanley.yokwe@nacc.com.au
