NSW regional news update February 2018

Hear about the latest news and upcoming events from NSW.

In Brief

  • NSW Regional Council and committee update
  • NFP seeking member for part time role
  • Events update and upcoming events in 2018

As we start a new year we look forward to continuing to work with the NSW Regional Council and member committees who act as advocates both for our members and the organisation. And I look forward to working with this year’s Chair, Peter Wells FCA, and Vice Chair George Bogdanovic FCA, with Council’s first meeting of 2018 scheduled for 26 February.

Your representatives are dedicated to supporting members and we welcome new members Peter Woodley and Sam Ayoubi. I would also like to again thank retiring members Cameron Johnstone and Ross Tilly for their past contribution.

Our Young CAs panel is led this year by Camille Woods as Chair and Ryan Hanson as Vice Chair, and I’d like to acknowledge the generous efforts of Sean Wengel who lead the panel in 2017.  

Events Update

The team has been busy coordinating various member events and training sessions in NSW.  In January a Welcome Evening and briefing session was held for new provisional members undertaking the CA Program, with over 140 members attending. To help engage with our young members representatives of the Young CAs (YCA) Panel attended the evening, as they do many young member events throughout the year. 

In February we held a Public Sector event with Peter Black CA and executive coach, educate our members about how to adapt to the changing future.  We also hosted an YCA event designed to prepare our members for board positions. It featured a panel of Non‑Executive Director Chartered Accountants who shared their insights and experiences. Thank you to our panel of directors: Matthew Rowe FCA, Carole Campbell FCA, Scott Holloway CA and Dina Gofman CA.
