The goal of the National Conference of the Home Economics Institute of Australia is to identify and ignite critical agendas relevant to the home economics profession by engaging in deep dialogue and critical thinking to develop creative solutions and challenge the status quo in the local and global communities in which we live and work. Deep thinking about these critical agendas, which will ensure that their content knowledge is current, will be complemented by equally deep thinking about contemporary curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment agendas for those working in the education sector.

HEIA(Q) is a division of the Home Economics Institute of Australia Inc., Australia's national peak professional association for home economists (HEIA). Other divisions include one for each state and territory. Professionals from a variety of fields are among the group's members. In Queensland, however, the majority of members are, have been, or will be professionals working in formal home economics education. These are some of them: Curriculum officers, tertiary lecturers, and students, both active and retired teachers. A small but important group of home economics professionals who work in community-based organisations in areas such as public health, nutrition, and consumer affairs complements this core of home economics educators.
