The 2022 Financial Counselling Conference is going to be an
in-person event. (We’re all a bit Zoomed-out). We can’t wait to see you all in person in Cairns.  It’s going to be epic. 

Registrations are now closed - standby for 2023!


If you'd like to join our mailing list, please let us know here, or contact the conference team.

We’re taking every measure to make this a covid-safe event:

  • All delegates must have up-to-date vaccination certificates 

  • We’ll ask all delegates to take RAT tests before coming to the conference. We’ll provide RAT tests to delegates and expect people to take them before attending each day

  • We will give full refunds to any last-minute cancellations due to illness
