An update from Sam Sargood CA, Victorian Council Chair

Sam Sargood CA provides an update on behalf of the CA ANZ Victorian Council

In brief

  • Fellowship Presentation Dinner
  • Victoria & Tasmania CA Connections
  • New Member Celebration Evening

On Monday 23 May 2022, we congratulated the 18 new Fellows at the Fellowship Presentation Dinner and I want to take this opportunity to congratulate each and every one of you for obtaining this wonderful achievement. Everyone that was in attendance thoroughly enjoyed hearing the stories about the new Fellows, their career and involvement with CAANZ, business or community.

During this dinner, we also recognised Elaine Coghlan who has received an Honorary Membership of CAANZ and has recently announced her retirement after an amazing 50 years of service to CAANZ. Along with Duncan Honore-Morris who presented Elaine with her Honorary Membership, there were countless people throughout the night who congratulated Elaine and thanked her for her service. Around the CAANZ office, Elaine will definitely be missed, however I would like to wish her all the best for her retirement and travels.

On 22 March 2022, Lincoln Tong hosted the CA Connections event with the assistance of Theresa Mitchell. This event aims to connect not-for-profit businesses who need a CAANZ member to fill a role or showcase CAANZ members seeking to offer their time. I would encourage anyone who is interested in taking on a role for a not-for-profit business to attend the next CA Connections event, it’s a fantastic initiative and I congratulate Lincoln and Theresa for making this such a great event.

On a more personal note, I am thoroughly looking forward to meeting and congratulating the new CAANZ members who completed their studies over the past 2 years at an event on Thursday 9 June 2022. It has obviously been a tough period for these new members, however it will be a great opportunity for each new member to meet their peers and celebrate their achievement.

Finally, the Victorian Regional Council is always keen to hear your feedback or matters of concern. If you would like to raise these and possibly attend a Victorian Regional Council meeting to share your comments, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Regional Manager - Victoria and Tasmania, Andrew Quinlan in the CA ANZ Melbourne office [email protected].
