Advocacy Meetings and Engagements

The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) NSW plays a fundamental advocacy role on behalf of members for the children in their care and their families. ACA NSW meets regularly with government Ministers, Shadow Minister, parliamentarians, government departments and advisors, industry peers and forums.

The following provides our members with a list of such advocacies. ACA NSW members are encouraged to either participate in terms of providing input, feedback and/or be part of delegations to meet elected representatives and bureaucrats, as well as peers.
