Message from the Chair | October 2019

The APMP ANZ chapter is gaining momentum, with a dedicated leadership group and active membership base. We discussed this with APMP Global CEO at the recent APMP ANZ conference in Melbourne, who was as excited as we are about the possibilities for our future direction.

Rick has encouraged the chapter leadership group to focus on creating value for our local membership base and tailor global offerings for the region. We started this process at the beginning of the year and are soon meeting to define plans for 2020. We always welcome feedback and ideas so please get in touch if there are ways we can help your membership work harder for you.The new member campaign was launched this month with a special offer of 15 months for the price of 12, as well as amazing prizes for existing members who refer a friend. Winners will be announced on 31 October. To find out more or get involved please click here.

Thank you again for your attendance and support of the APMP ANZ conference ‘make an impact’. The event was such a success that we plan to do it all again on 26 and 27 August 2020 in Sydney. A lot of creativity, inspiration and perspiration goes into making the conference happen so if you are interested in being behind the scenes next year, please get in touch as part of the committee nomination process.We are currently calling for nominations for the 2020 committee, looking for people who are just as passionate about APMP and our industry as the current leadership group. To nominate, please contact me via and tell us how you would bring value as part of the APMP ANZ leadership group.

I attended an APMP networking event in Perth this week. It was great to see so many familiar faces and take part in Nigel Dennis’ Foundation Certification quiz (I got most of them right, Nigel!). The event reinforced the fantastic community that has been built in the APMP ANZ chapter and that despite competing with each other at times, we are also able to support each other in our career journeys. If you regularly travel within the region, sign up to hear about upcoming events in each location or keep an eye on the Networking Events section of our website so that you’re not alone when interstate.
