2020 WAFA Conference Adelaide co-located with AFAC



2020 Con­fer­ence State­ment

It is with deep regret that the Board of Women and Fire­fight­ing Aus­trala­sia announce the post­pone­ment of the 2020 Con­fer­ence which was to be co-locat­ed with AFAC in Ade­laide this August. With the cur­rent restric­tions in place due to the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic the Board made the dif­fi­cult deci­sion to post­pone the con­fer­ence and are cur­rent­ly work­ing on plans to enable us to con­tin­ue to pro­mote, sup­port and net­work with our mem­bers and sup­port­ers across Aus­trala­sia.
In an effort to recog­nise the great work of our mem­bers and sup­port­ers the deci­sion has been made that the WAFA Awards for 2020 will still be award­ed. The clos­ing date for these awards will be extend­ed and the award win­ners announced in August in line with the date the con­fer­ence would’ve been held.
