NSW Regional Office Update

As Regional Manager a key component of my role is member engagement, either individually, or at one of our various events.  And I am pleased to lead a team of dedicated staff who support the more than 32,000 members in NSW.  To ensure our engagement is relevant for members we also work closely with the NSW Regional Council, and NSW committees such as the YCA Panel and the various regional country members groups, as well as the Chartered Accountants Advisory Group.  

The Chartered Accountants Advisory Group is a valuable service and utilised by a number of our members. Each Group is comprised of senior members who provide assistance to colleagues who find themselves needing to confidentially discuss either ethical or practice issues with a senior CA from our panel. As Regional Manager I act as members’ conduit with the NSW Group, therefore if you wish to use this service please don’t hesitate to email me. 

NSW Regional Council Elections

Each year in Australia there are a number of Regional Council positions to fill. For 2018 the nomination period runs from 1 to 31 August and nomination forms will be made available via the website, or through your local Regional Office.  

Where the nominations for a particular region are equal to or fewer than the number of vacancies, the nominees are deemed automatically appointed to that position without the need for an election. Where the nominations for a particular region exceed the number of positions available, then an election will be held during September and October, and the results announced at the Regional Annual General Meeting.  

Further information in regard to the role of a Regional Councillor is currently available via the website
