Christmas Celebration in WA
There was a healthy turnout for the ACA – WA’s annual President’s Cocktail Party on the rooftop of the Alex Hotel.
Despite some earlier nervousness about the weather, the evening turned out perfectly, with members, the committee and special guests enjoying drinks and canapés in one of Perth’s most beautiful locations.
Recently appointed Branch President, Malcolm Jones, gave a great speech outlining the Committee’s achievements over the past year, namely a growth in membership despite stagnant conditions and the successful launch of our Business of Small Practice sub-committee and forum. He also gave an insight into our events for 2019, which include visits from interstate experts and new venues in the Perth CBD and Fremantle.
Most importantly, the evening provided an opportunity to acknowledge and give thanks to outgoing President, Kieran Wong, for his contribution to the ACA at both a branch and national level. During his time at the helm in WA, Kieran increased our engagement with all levels of government and enhanced connections with small practice and younger members of the profession. His time on the Committee was rewarded with a fishing charter to be enjoyed in the ocean off Freo with his sons.
ACA – WA wishes all members a safe and happy festive season, and a successful year in business ahead.
