About the FCVic COVID-19 Summit
A lot has happened in the 12 months since COVID-19 reached Australia and affected the way in which we all live and work. The hardship landscape experienced dramatic changes, several of which are still in play.
Starting in September 2020, FCVic commenced a series of hardship forums which opened discussions around the impacts of COVID-19. This interaction between financial counsellors and industry stakeholders provided valuable insights and opportunities for collaboration.
This highly interactive event will allow those conversations to continue. Filling the gap created by the absence of our annual conference last year, the Summit will offer opportunities for discussion, brainstorming, Q&A and interaction with representatives from a variety of industries around what lies ahead for Victorians experiencing, or at risk of, financial hardship resulting from COVID-19.
In addition FCVic will be holding the launch of it’s history book Financial Counselling in Victoria: the first 40 years at the conclusion of the summit.
Following the success of our Virtual Gala Awards Event in October, the vibrant Justine Sless is back as MC for the day.
For our members unable to attend in-person, the main plenary sessions will be live-streamed to ensure that no one misses out.
Our program for the day is still in development – please check back again soon for updates.
