The AAMIG Annual General Meeting was held on Wednesday, 16 October, at which all Board members were returned, and the new constitution adopted. We appreciate the support that the Board provides to AAMIG, and to BDO who hosted the meeting.
AAMIG was invited to the launch of “Skilled Migrant Professionals” – a magazine for skilled migrant professionals, investors and entrepreneurs. We encourage you to read it for an insight into the skills that are available in Perth, and the networks back into Africa. A soft copy is available at http://www.smpmagazine.com.au/
I had a successful visit to Melbourne, where together with PwC we ran a networking event covering how to mitigate fraud, bribery and corruption in your offshore locations. As a result of the high level of interest shown, we are now planning to run quarterly meetings in Melbourne, commencing in early 2015.
Further to recent discussion with DFAT, we are now in the process of developing a Direct Aid Program to be coordinated through AAMIG. More information will be available shortly.
A panel of national and international health experts, including David Heymann from Chatham house, will be presenting on “The Economic impacts of infectious diseases” at a CEDA breakfast on Thursday, 9 December. Please note, CEDA has offered AAMIG members a discounted rate of $130 per person or a table of 10 for $1170.
Finally, we would like to invite you to our “Mix and Mingle” end-of-year celebration on Thursday, 27 November, to thank you all for the support you have given us this year. And on that note, sponsorship opportunities for Celtic Club Events and Workshops are now available for 2015. If you would like to be involved, please contact me as soon as possible, as places are filling fast!
