The AFA 2019 conference will be taking place in Adelaide in August this year, with this year’s theme being ‘united’.
The AFA Awards ceremony will also take place during the conference, aiming to showcase excellence in advice industry. Winners will be announced during the gala dinner.
Key speaker and session details will be released later this month.
AFA chief executive Philip Kewin said the conference would be focusing on members coming together to explore progressive ideas and create opportunities out of the challenges the sector is facing.
The body has three pillars supporting the theme of united: uncover, unwind and understand.
“The conference offers delegates the opportunities to cover innovative ways to provide valuable advice to more people,” Mr Kewin said.
“Our conferences have always helped advisers build supportive networks to share knowledge and take time out from the pressures of every day to build leadership and wellbeing skills so that they and their businesses can thrive.
“We know that maintaining CPD hours is a big focus, so we’ll be working to ensure people walk away with both the pragmatic tools and the education they need to facilitate the delivery of outstanding client advice.”
