      On April 26, AuSAE informed our members of the Government’s plan to implement a $2,000 cap on work related education expense deductions from 1 July 2014. On behalf of our members AuSAE released a media statement and wrote to the Government outlining our concerns about this policy and the significant impact this policy will have on the Australian non-profit sector. The Government has now contacted AuSAE regarding the release of a new discussion paper titled Reform to deductions for education expenses. We are asking all members who will be affected by this proposed cap to read this discussion paper and to submit your view. The Government will accept written and electronic submissions until 12 July 2013. AuSAE is working hard to have this issue resolved favourably and will keep you up to date with any developments.

      President of AuSAE

      Best of all, you don’t need to worry that delivery and receipt of content is impeded by Spam filters, Sender reputation, Opt Out, ACMA, virus protection, size limits and many other challenges faced with traditional delivery methods.

      What kind of information will I get?

      We receive around 200-300 e-bulletins a day. Much of the content isn’t worth passing along. But there are always at least a couple that contain some great insights or critical information we know others would like to know about. This app provides us with a channel to get that information to you. The app provides you with a great way to keep up-to-date with current information and news on the global association sector… and saves you having to spending hours sifting through hundreds of e-bulletins for the few good bits.

      How do you get the AuSAE App on your mobile device?

      • If you are on your Android smart device click here to download the app.
      • If you are on your Apple smart device click here to download the app.
      • Go to the AuSAE web site and download from the bottom of the Home Page.
      • Go straight to the Apple or Google store, search for AuSAE and download it.

      Want one for your organisation to engage with your members?

      You could have your own mobile app available in Apple and Google app stores in 2-4 weeks at under A$10K for AuSAE members. For more information on getting your own fully branded version of the PRODOCOM association app, we recommend you contact the friendly team at PRODOCOM who developed and supplied the app for AuSAE on 1300 857 739.
