New Directors Appointed to the ACTA Board

At its Annual General Meeting held on 8 December 2021, a number of changes were made to the Australian Corporate Treasury Association Board.

Firstly, we say goodbye, with huge thanks, to departing Directors Fulvio Barbuio, Clive Richards and Melinda Gibson.  All have given selflessly over many years to the ACTA in many ways and made enormous contributions.  We do though look forward to your continuing engagement!

Secondly, we are thrilled to welcome three new Directors, Hope Gatis, Uri Gordon and Richard Humphreys.  All three are very highly regarded professionals who will bring fresh ideas and eyes to the organisation as it enters a new phase.

We are also very excited to advise that Alice Van Der Geest has been appointed President of the ACTA, with Kurt Smith as Vice President.  Congratulations to both of you – you have already made many significant contributions and look forward to many more.

Congratulations and thanks to all of you.

ACTA Appoints Technical Director


The Australian Corporate Treasury Association (ACTA) is thrilled to announce the appointment of Dr. Kurt Smith to the crucial newly created role of Technical Director.


Kurt has a long and successful career across both sides of the Treasury community, firstly via Fund Management and senior Bank trading positions, before moving into Corporate Finance and Treasury. This coupled with Kurts strong Startup and Academic background make him the ideal person to help us to take ACTA’s CPD, Education and Advocacy forward. 

Kurt’s initial focus will be on our overarching CPD curriculum, including our developing Certification program.

Welcome Kurt!

34th Annual Conference – Change of Date

New dates!

In addition to wanting to see our members in a face to face setting, the health and safety of the Treasury Community is our highest priority. 

After careful consideration, and following the continued uncertainty caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19), the ACTA Board and Management have made the decision to move the 34th Annual Australian Treasury Conference to a later date.

The 34th Annual Australian Treasury Conference will now take place on 4th-6th May 2022. 

Having spent the year preparing for the Conference, and with Conference Committee developing what we think is our most exciting Conference Program yet, coupled with the time between Conferences, and the outstanding venue, we are planning for, and expecting this to be, the biggest ACTA Conference ever.


Original Event Date: 29 Nov – 1 Dec 2021

New Event Date: 4th – 6th May 2022

All ticket purchases for the Nov/Dec 2021 dates will be honoured for the rescheduled May 2022 dates.

If you are unable to attend on the new dates (4th-6th May 2022) and seek a refund, or wish to discuss your options please email us at comms@actatreasury.com.au 

The latest information will always be at www.treasuryconference.com.au.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you, the Treasury Community for your support, open discussions and encouragement. Rescheduling the Conference will enable us to provide the experience that the Treasury Community expect and deserve in a safe environment.

We look forward to hosting you all in new year. Until then, stay safe and healthy.
