Hi to all,

Happy 2018 to all. I hope you had an amazing holiday break and got to bathe in Victoria’s great beaches through the Melbourne heatwave.

It’s time to get back into it now and get back to business. FBA has a series of events planned for 2018 which I am sure will assist you in your own learning, continuous improvement of your business and developing your people. Please go to the events calendar to see a list of the Victorian events. 

The State conference has now been renamed “Family Business Insights VIC 2018” and it will be a half day held on the 16th of May in the Skyline Room at Rydges on Swanston. Pencil the date into your diary and look out for early bird bookings coming soon.

We’re pleased to announce that the FBA Family Owned Emblem campaign will be released by the end of February. Stay tuned.

The FBA Adviser referral system has also been released and members have been sent an email. Please go to to begin your search today.

I would like to thank Alex Petersen for all her work in Victoria as State Manager and wish her all the best as she moves back to her home state of NSW to take on the role of State Manager there.

Wishing everyone a great 2018 working in your family business.

Sara Pantaleo
State Chair, VIC
