Regional Manager's update

Dear Tasmanian CAs,

I hope you are faring well as the cold mornings and early sunsets remind us that we are entering a Tasmanian winter.

As a proud local, it is great to see that even in this post-COVID environment Tasmania is holding its reputation as one of the places to be in the colder months. Attractions such as Dark Mofo in the south and world-class mountain bike trails across the north continue to draw mainland visitors in droves, and the shutdown, which some sectors of the economy used to experience at this time of year, is beginning to look like a thing of the past.

Some of you may have seen a recent post in the CA ANZ Tasmanian Members Facebook group shining a light on the career of Tasmanian CA, Shaun Sargent. The Council welcomed the opportunity to hear from Shaun in his capacity as Tasmanian representative on the CA ANZ National Charities and Not for Profit Committee at our latest meeting.

Involvement in not-for-profit roles is such an enriching experience available to CAs, both personally and professionally, and whether in a paid or voluntary capacity. As such, the Tasmanian Council is working with Shaun on delivering a NFP session for members in the next few months, featuring a keynote speaker, workshop session and networking.

This will be a fantastic opportunity for those hoping to find out more about the sector and how they can become involved, as well as for those with a richer history in the sector to share their experiences. Please keep an eye out for more details soon.

We will continue to share the stories of Tasmanian CAs who are making a difference with their work in our Facebook group over the coming months. If you are not yet a member of the group, please follow this link to submit a request a join – it's a great place to stay up to date with the latest updates, news and views about all things CA.

I would also like to take this opportunity to make a call for CA ANZ Fellowship nominations.

Fellowship is for CAs who deserve recognition for making an outstanding professional contribution to CA ANZ, the community, to business or through teaching and research.

From my own personal experience, it is a great honour to be recognised by your peers, and I encourage you all to have a think about any colleagues or contacts you may have who might fit the bill.

If you know a CA who has made a difference to their community, or the profession more broadly through their work, please contact [email protected] to find out how to nominate them for fellowship.

As always, if there is anything else the Council can help you with, please feel free to send an email or reach out to a councillor directly.

All the best,
Mark Leis
