Yumalundi and Hello

We hope you have had a chance to recharge over the holiday season. It looks like 2022 will continue to be a challenging one as the current pandemic enters a third year. As always though, we can not wait to get stuck in and make 2022 a great year for the ACT. February looks to be a month where we can all get back into the swing of things with a gradual return to work for us here at the ACT office and I hope for you all as well.

Our first event of the year will be our annual member forum. This year it will be hosted as a virtual opportunity to engage in and provide feedback on the events, activities and outputs of the ACT Regional Office. Hosted by Jamie Penrose, ACT Regional General Manager, and our ACT Regional Council. Hear from councillors, members and committee members as we generate a conversation for the future of the profession in the ACT.  Details for the event can be found here or on the ACT events page.

At the end of last year we hosted our annual Leadership in Government Awards. Congratulations to Bradley Medland FCA and Anna La CA for your recognition and work in being awarded  the Outstanding Contribution to the Public Sector Award and Achievement Award respectively. Read more about our winners here on MyCA or here in Acuity.
