Dear Victorian CAs,  

It is an honour to serve as your Victorian Regional Council Chair for 2024 with Rob Dennis FCA in the position of Vice Chair. We also welcome Atisa de Krester as a new member of the Victorian Council.  

The council is focussed on upping the ante on Member engagement at all levels. Including championing the attractiveness of the profession and listening to the views of you the members across the region to channel comments and findings through CA ANZ to ensure the collective views across the region are heard. 

I have been hearing from many members their concerns on the pipeline of talent coming into the profession and have been proud to see Victorian members lead the way in dispelling common misconceptions of what it means to work in the profession through a CA ANZ campaign targeted at those considering their options post Year 12. Watch this space for an exciting upcoming attraction campaign and educational content aimed at influencers on student career decisions. CA ANZ has also been undertaking a survey of members in Australia on the ongoing skills shortages and recruitment challenges impacting the profession. The results will be available shortly to help inform education, skills and migration policy and support members impacted by the shortages. CA ANZ produced ten major education, skills, migration and employment submissions in Australia between November 2022 and December 2023 focussing on a number of these priority areas. 

I’d encourage you if interested in providing feedback on key issues impacting the profession and services and support that CA ANZ provides to join the Member Insights Panel.

Thank you and I am looking forward to advocating for members across Victoria.  

Fiona Hansen FCA 
Chair – CA ANZ Victorian Council
