For 2023, ACA NSW will host Hub Huddles in-person at NSW’s regional centres (ie Coffs Harbour, Newcastle, Central Coast, Wollongong and Dubbo).

Unlike "What's the Buzz" Meetings (formerly ACA NSW’s Network Meetings), Hub Huddles will be in a social and informal format, with food and beverages available in a private space.


Please note that this feature will be free for ACA NSW members. Attendance of non-members is at a nominal fee to cover food and drinks.

Members and non-members can ask and discuss anything, including the following topics, at ACA NSW Hub Huddles: 


  • Federal Government’s new industrial relations changes
  • ACCC Pricing Inquiry
  • NSW Government’s fee affordability, accessibility, choice review by IPART
  • Labour shortages
  • Increases in Child Care Subsidies
  • ACECQA’s changes to Assessments & Ratings
  • Update on NSW’s Universal Pre-Kindergarten

  • Update on NSW’s Child Safe Standards changes
  • (New) Start Strong funding, Affordable Preschool funding & 3-Year-Old Trial funding
