Message from the President and CEO

As 2020 begins, we hope all our members have had a safe and happy new year.

Sadly, we know that many people and communities are and have been impacted by the bushfires currently affecting much of Australia.

Understandably, the immediate concerns remain on community safety, food and shelter. In the weeks and months ahead, it will be the time to focus on supporting and helping communities to rebuild.

Many of our members may be directly affected by the fires, may have clients with businesses which have been impacted, or may be part of communities where their expertise in the recovery and rebuilding process will be beneficial.

The complimentary CPA Australia Disaster Recovery Toolkit provides guidance to businesses impacted by a disaster and is available to all members.

The Toolkit will continue to be updated and additional relevant information added as it becomes available to assist our members as they provide support within their local communities.

For any members who have been directly impacted by the fires and require any assistance from CPA Australia, contact us on 1300 73 73 73.

CPA Australia is donating $100,000 to bushfire recovery efforts. For any members wishing to assist in recovery efforts, donations may be made to national and state appeals, including:
