Executive Briefing (Melbourne): Year in Preview
AuSAE Executive Briefing events provide an exclusive environment for motivated association executives to gain insights and advice from other industry professionals. Executive Briefing events enables members to raise and discuss critical issues affecting industry and network with other professionals from the not-for-profit sector.
The year ahead is going to present a raft of changes to the world of workplace relations as we know it and we would love to have you join us for some robust discussions with a select group of FCB’s industry association clients. We will explore in detail the upcoming “pressure points” that will likely affect association members, with these and ways associations can potentially improve their member service proposition for retention and growth of their member base.
The topics we will cover include:
1. The Big Ticket issues of 2019 including the looming election and the likely "pressure points" which will affect association members;
2. The most significant employment law cases of the past 12 months and what the impact these will have on your members;
3. Legislative and Award changes including casual conversion, Government responses to Workpac, and Fair Work Amendment (Family and Domestic Violence Leave) Bill 2018 among others;
4. What new services and resources are available to associations to help them deal with the changing landscape in the coming 12 months;
5. Ways associations can potentially improve their member service proposition for retention and growth of their member base.
The “Year in Preview” series operate under Chatham House Rules and provide an ideal forum to gleam some insights from your peers, share your views and hear updates from FCB as Australia’s leading employment law firm. This event has been specifically tailored for professionals working in Professional and Industry Associations.
