Promo Insider July 2016 – Message From CEO

Welcome to the July edition of Promo Insider – happy new financial year! What an end to the year we have had within the space of two weeks. with Brexit and the Australian election.

The UK would of course remain in the EU and the Australian Government would be returned (albeit likely with a smaller margin). How things can change so quickly.

Promo Insider April 2016 – Message From CEO

Welcome to the April edition of Promo Insider.  It is fair to say the last month was a hectic one as we start to progress the process of transition and active pursuit of APPA’s vision of “Shaping our profession through education, professionalism, business facilitation and influence”.   In pursuing this vision it is important that we ensure that all stakeholders (members, non-members, government, regulators, clients and end users) understand the following key messages:

The bad news is time flies… The good news is you're the pilot - Cliff Quicksell

There are very few constants in our lives and time is one of them.

Promo Insider March 2016 – Message From CEO

On the 24th February I attended my first APPA Board meeting.  As someone who has worked in the association world for over 20 years I understand it takes a great deal of passion and commitment to put your hand up to volunteer for your industry association.  I also understand that it is only through the work of volunteers that associations thrive and grow with the industries they represent.
