Country Conference 2020

The 2020 Country Conference will be held in Singleton from Friday 28 February to Sunday 1 March at the Singleton Civic Centre.

This conference will build on the successful format used in recent Country Conferences. The format will include a Campaign Insight training day on Friday followed by the usual Friday night get together; the Leaders’ and Unions NSW addresses; policy workshops; Conference Dinner & Trivia on Saturday; and Conference proceedings on Sunday.

The strategic aims of Country Conference will be to build and develop the profile of Country Labor and our country candidates, further develop rural and regional policy and connect with the trade union movement and our regional communities.
