The formalities began with a Welcome to Country from Uncle Allan Murray, followed by an introduction from Senior Account Manager for Corporate Sector, Rosanna La Martina. Rosanna acknowledged the hard work that our graduates put in over the years to become Chartered Accountants.

The evening was hosted by NSW Regional Chair, Joanna Balcomb FCA. Joanna welcomed our new members and spoke about the power of the CA designation. Joanna is a clear example of the opportunities being a Chartered Accountant can lead to, both within in the Chartered Accountants governance body and in the community.

Rachel Grimes AM FCA, former President for CA ANZ delivered the keynote address for the evening to our new members. Rachel delivered many words of wisdom to our members as they enter the next chapter of their careers. With a wealth of experience and knowledge behind her, Rachel was just the person required for our new members to hear from.
