Our Strategic Plan for 2019-20 was released today.
The development process had started with the 2019 Strategic Review and Planning day on 25 June 2019 in Melbourne. Members were invited to participate and two facilitators assisted the review and planning process.
In summary, our overall Purpose, Vision and Mission were re-comfirmed with the goal of becoming “the Meeting Place” for Thought Leaders on all things Professional.
A Strategic Review and Refresh Day is planned for March 2020.
We held a Members-Only Forum on Professionalism and Ethics on 17 November 2018 in Melbourne. Dr Wim VanDeKerckhove PhD, Co-Director of the Centre for Research on Employment and Work (CREW) at the University of Greenwich UK and a global leader in whistleblowing management standards gave the keynote which was followed by very comprehensive discussions.
“On behalf of the Board of the Australian Council of Professions, I am saddened to advise of the passing last weekend of our friend, colleague and former President, Brenda Aynsley OAM FACS CP.ACoP President Klaus Veil, 15 August 2018
Brenda was respected by us all as a leader and mentor within the Australian Computer Society, the Australian Council of Professions and across the professions that our organisation represents. She was fearless in her advocacy of the value of professionalism and the maintenance of the highest standards of professional and ethical practice.
