Dear Members,

We have just concluded our Essential Treasurer series for 2019. While we don’t have survey results as yet, the events were well attended and well regarded. That being said, in our bigger cities, I do believe we should be aiming for more attendance – that could be due to the length of the sessions, content, time of year, etc, so we will be reviewing, and looking to develop a program that closely aligns with member’s needs.

A big thanks to EY, who provided their fantastic locations, as well as assistance with planning and speakers. Likewise to our other speakers, including those from CBA, Bloomberg, and our great industry speakers Chris Nelson and Ian Walford.

Our Technical Committee Chair Lindesay Brine will make more comment on the content, but in particular, the IBOR sessions certainly generated a lot of discussion. I’m sure this will be a hot topic now for some time and something as an organisation, we are keen to keep discussing, and keeping the membership abreast of.

We also continue to work with the Women In Treasury group to bring valuable sessions around the country and hoping to be in Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth shortly.

Finally, a huge thank you to our State Committee’s around the country, they are providing great support to us as staff, and a lot of that goes unnoticed. We’re really starting to see the benefits of your hard work.

Ben Leaver
