Industry updates: Flagship event opportunities, new MOU with Israel and Geneva and more!

With bushfires still devastating the country, I would like to recognise some of the measures that our members have taken to support those in need.

Intuit has pledged $1,000,000 USD to help with relief efforts and implemented donation matching through the We Care and Give Back program. NAB Bank has also given all employees an additional day of annual leave to be spent in a bushfire affected town. (more…)

FinTech industry updates: Issue paper submitted, FA got a new website!

Welcome back to 2020, I hope that everyone had a great end of year break with friends and family.
 

However, I want to touch on a more serious note. Over the break, many families suffered an extreme amount of devastation across the country as a result of the bushfire disaster.

I encourage everyone in the community to do as much as they can to support those in need. Whether that is helping at a food/supplies drive, volunteering at a relief shelter or donating.

To assist in this, FinTech Australia has collated a list of links to help steer any volunteering or donation efforts to where they are needed.
