The National Conference (or NatCon, as it is known) is the Annual General Meeting for the NUS. It is attended by over 100 people, including official delegates from member universities and observers. Every accredited student organisation — that is, those who have paid an accreditation fee — is able to send voting delegates. There are discussions about policy, elections for executive positions, and reports from outgoing executive members. This year, the conference will be held in Geelong from 11 to 15 December.
