Helpful template to support your attendance at the Direct Support Workers Conference


Hoping your boss will send you to the 2024 Direct Support Workers Conference?

To convince them you may need to be persuasive and explain how attending will benefit both you and the organisation.

We’ve taken the hard work out of this for you by creating a template you can use when asking for their support.  


Subject: Request to attend the 2024 Direct Support Workers Conference

Dear <Recipient’s Name>,

I am reaching out to propose that <organisation name> sponsor my attendance at the 2024 Direct Support Workers (DSW) Conference on Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 July at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Attending the DSW Conference will allow me to gain valuable insights into the latest industry trends and best practices in support work and network with key members of the industry. The 2024 program has been crafted around the theme Learn. Lead. Deliver and these pillars will provide clear and actionable learnings which I will be able to directly apply in my role.

The program session and presenters which are of particular interest to me include <specify the speakers and topics of interest> as these are areas of growth for me and would also positively benefit <organisation name>. You can view the full program here https://dsw.org.au/program/  

Further, the networking opportunities at this event will provide direct access to industry leaders and professionals. These connections could be invaluable for our organisation, potentially facilitating collaboration and insight into industry best practice.

The cost of a two-day registration is <$240 prior to Friday 17th May and $290 from Saturday 18th May>. I am confident that this conference will not only contribute to my own professional growth but will also bring fresh perspective, strategies and skills to our team.

I would be happy to share my insights and learnings with the team after.

Your approval of this request would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for considering this opportunity. I am happy to discuss this further with you if you need more information or have any concerns. 

Warm regards,
