Communities in Control 2019 Conference

Every year for more than a decade the Communities in Control conference has offered

destinies and are able to set their own priorities, when they receive the practical support
they need to design their own approaches and create their own solutions, Australia is a
happier, healthier and livelier place on every scale from the nation to the street.
