WELCOME to wafes 2017

Conference registration

Invitations to register for the 2017 conference are facilitated through your Volunteer Association.

If you receive an invitation from your Association please officially register your attendance through this website by clicking on the registration button found on this page. You will need an email address to complete this online process.

Registering early ensures your accommodation requirements can be met. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee you will be in the same hotel as your fellow volunteer service delegates if you register late. Registrations open on Monday 22 May and close on Monday 3 July for regional delegates and Monday 21 August for Perth metro delegates.

If you have not previously attended the conference and did not receive an invitation from your Association, you may apply to attend directly through DFES. These strictly limited places are not guaranteed but we will endeavour to assist your request. To register your interest, please email your details including name, BGU and role by clicking here.

If you require assistance with your online registration please contact your Association directly.

Dietary requirements: During the conference you will be provided with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. When you register you will be prompted to provide details of any specific dietary requirements such as allergies or gluten intolerance.

Disability access requirements: If you require assistance or have special needs we are happy to assist you. Please provide details when you register.

Changing registration details: If you need to make changes to your registration details, you can login to the registration page using the details that were emailed to you after completing your original registration.

Changing travel and accommodation details: If you need to make changes to your travel and/or accommodation booking, please contact Event Travel Management on 1300 040 934 or WAFEStravel@eventsctm.com. Change fees may apply.
