Yep! AVCon is entirely and utterly volunteer-operated, and our only payment is in friendship! Since 2002, AVCon has always been a passion project of dedicated geeks who have a flair for creativity, organisation and business.
First and foremost, the Elect is answerable to its Membership, who oversees how the organisation is run. Then, as a not-for-profit charitable organisation, we must report our annual earnings and expenses to the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission (ACNC) to maintain our status. You can view our ACNC page here; Team AVCon Inc. | ACNC.
