(Waiting List) NSW Association Breakfast: Collaborating with Government to Improve Association Advocacy Outcomes
Join us for our exclusive NSW Association Breakfast.
This panel session will provide examples and details of how an association can build positive relationships with the government and ensure a continuous working relationship that supports associations’ policy and advocacy plans.
ABOUT THE PRESENTERS
Elaine Abery, Director, Unravelling Red Tape
Elaine has studied and won awards for law, science and foreign languages at Universities around the world.
She spent over a decade in the Australian Federal Government, designing law and creating solutions to challenging policy issues. This included creating the legislation for the now controversial refundable franking credits.
Elaine then jumped ship to the association sector, working with the Property Council of Australia, then as General Manager – Strategic Policy for Private Healthcare Australia.
Elaine believes that government, and its legislation, should empower business and charities to create a better community. She created Unravelling Red Tape in 2018 to work with associations, industry and government to fulfil this dream, one law at a time.
