AAAG End-of-Year Lunch

2 November 2023

The Melbourne-based Architectural Administration & Accounting Group (AAAG) is having its last meeting of the year and an end-of-year lunch at Foreground Architecture in Carlton on 9 November. Newcomers welcome!

The topic is Building a Better Culture – the systems, strategies, policies and practices members are using to support their people and businesses. Discussions will cover the pros and cons of flexible, hybrid and sometimes office-first workplaces – what’s working, what’s not and what could be done better.

The session will be moderated by AAAG Chair Kenneth Betts and will feature speakers Gerard McCurry from Brand Architects, Courtney Smith from CHC and Jess Hyde from Foreground Architecture. After initial discussions, we’ll open to the floor to address any questions or burning issues.

Our end-of-year lunch meeting is kindly hosted by Foreground Architecture, together with the Built Environment Channel (BEC), one of the ACA’s national partners. If you’ve heard of the BEC screens but not seen them in action, here’s the opportunity to have a look and ask questions!

We hope to allow for online attendance for those unable to make it in person. Please confirm you would like the online joining link by booking an online attendee ticket or contacting Katherine Ygosse direct on
