What is WACSSO Conference?

WACSSO Conference is the premium annual networking, training and development event for P&C affiliates in WA. It recognises the invaluable contribution P&C Associations and school communities make to the educational outcomes of students in Western Australian schools.

Importantly, WACSSO Conference gives members of P&C Associations the opportunity to have a say on the future educational direction of their children. The Education Minister and Director General panel plus the Agenda Item session during our AGM are both important advocacy opportunities for delegates. 

WACSSO Conference is made possible through the generous support of our partners, and all delegates have the opportunity to meet representatives in our highly anticipated 'partner hall' each year.

All P&Cs are encouraged to send delegates to WACSSO Conference. If you have questions about this event, please contact us.

Conference Theme 2024

The theme for WACSSO Conference 2024 is 'Innovate, Collaborate, Advocate.'

With an eye to the future, this Conference will encourage blue-sky thinking with delegates invited to consider immediate trends that need addressing in the short-term, through to longer-term, predicted trends that will impact P&Cs and education. 

Workshop and speaker topics are planned to include: AI and education, future trends - what’s next in fundraising/events/canteens, future-proofing your P&C through sustainable (financial and organisational) practices, advocacy topics that future-proof the education system, and effective strategic planning/goal setting.
