Helping country delegates get to Conference!

WACSSO is excited to announce that a limited number of regional, rural and remote delegate sponsorship packages will be available, generously provided by Lotterywest. The funding provides the opportunity for country delegates to attend our 2018 Annual Conference.

Funding will cover travel and approved accommodation costs, (meals, taxi fares and hire cars are not included). Vehicle travel costs will be reimbursed on a per km rate, (please contact WACSSO office for rates) paid after the conference. The WACSSO office will book and pay for airfares and accommodation directly on delegates behalf.

In order for WACSSO to secure this year’s Lotterywest grant and be in the running for future years, we are required to allocate the successful applicants shared accommodation in twin rooms (2 double beds per room). Recipients who request single accommodation will be required to make a prepaid subsidy of $70 for a single night and $120 for two nights.

The application form is now available, below. Applications must be received before the closing date of Friday 1st June 2018.

Successful applicants will be notified via email by 15th June.

For more information, please email our Corporate Support Officer at or phone 9264 4004.

Remember through 2018/19 affiliation, there is no cost for the first delegate attending Conference.

The cost for the second delegate, and any additional observers, from your P&C to attend is $175/person (including GST).
