Its scary to think that we only have a few events left in 2016.

Our next event coming up is our Annual Adviser Breakfast, October 20, this year the guest speaker is Frank Walker, I’m sure we’ve all heard the radio ads! This event is open to all members, ie those from a family business and also advisers.

Our End of Year/Hall of Fame Event will round off the year nicely on November 30, it will be held at Feast of Merit (YGAP) in Richmond and we will be announcing this year’s inductees into the Hall of Fame.

In next month’s newsletter I will share more about what we have planned for FBA Victoria in 2017.

What are your plans for 2017? Can FBA help with anything, do you need training or would a forum group be of benefit?

Finally, I want to say congratulations the thirty finalists who have been announced in the 2016 Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Awards – including three family businesses:
Jardan Australia
Beaconsfield Dental
Yarra Valley Estate
