Expressions of interest open for Brisbane information session


5 October 2018

You may be aware that the ROC has now delivered four broad based information sessions to around 300 representatives from trade unions and employer organisations this year in Parramatta, Melbourne, Darwin and Perth. 

Most recently, the half day information session in Perth on 19 September was designed to provide education around a range of contemporary issues relevant to registered organisations and their members including financial reporting obligations and tips for increasing compliance, new officer induction, corrupting benefits and officer and related party disclosures, and general compliance.

We continue to receive positive feedback about the value of the information sessions from participants, particularly in response to our financial advisor's tips about increasing compliance, the ROC Flower pictograph (which is a terrific guide which hyperlinks to all our information and guidance tools) and our web-based compliance calculator on the ROC website.

In response to one session, 99% of responders agreed that it was informative or very informative and in response to another, 97% of responders agreed that they would attend another ROC information session.  

Based on the quantity and quality of feedback received, we are now proposing on 20 November to deliver our final information session for 2018 in Brisbane.  

Before finally committing resources to the Brisbane session, we are interested in confirming the level of interest from registered organisations and relevant stakeholders operating in Queensland or from others who are considering travelling to Brisbane to attend the session.  

The session is open to registered organisations, employer associations, industrial groups, auditors and peak bodies. Once again the program for this session will be refined to reflect the feedback we have to date received. 

Based on a program broadly similar to that delivered most recently in Perth, we have selected the following potential delivery time.

Tuesday 20 November 2018 

8.30am to 2.30pm (including lunch provided for participants) 

Venue - To be advised - Central Brisbane location

If you haven’t already responded, you can register your expression of interest for the Brisbane session simply by email to ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ by Friday 19 October to enable a final assessment of interest.

Once we have a more definite picture about the number of proposed attendees we will confirm the Brisbane information session and venue and provide further and more specific registration information. 

Kind regards
