4. Event Format & Promotion

4.1      Event format

Direct Mail & Email Campaigns
Individual event programs are developed for each event. These programs will be marketed
through direct mail and email to members and non-members across the regions where the
events will be held.

The NIA website will have advertising dedicated to the events. The NIA website provides the
opportunity for delegates to register and pay online.

5.2    Event Description

Event Name                     Description


NSW State Conference &         The annual NSW State Congress and Business Expo will be held on 12 and 13
Business Expo                  November 2009 at Penrith Panthers. The theme for 2009 is “keep your eye on the
                               ball” and has been designed to give our members and other professional accountants
                               the finely tuned technical skills, strategic mindset and the professional stamina to
                               outlast their competition and succeed in today’s increasingly complex business
                               environment.

                               The program features an exciting lineup of speakers and topics with 27 sessions
                               planned across two days. The 2009 NSW State Congress will include three streams
                               – one specifically for members working in practice; one for members in commerce;
                               and one for members working in government or not for profit organisations.

                               It is hoped the new format will better accommodate the diverse needs of our
                               membership base. As in the past, it is expected that the majority of delegates will
                               come from public practice.


Tasmanian Congress             The Tasmanian Congress is immensely popular with both local and interstate
Freycinet, Tasmania            members not only for the high quality of the education program but also the
                               picturesque Tasmanian locations the event has been held in.                Sponsors
                               representatives are encouraged to join with delegates, speakers, staff, partners and
                               family members in the many activities scheduled over the four day period.

                               The 2010 event will be held at Freycinet Lodge located on Tasmania’s East Coast on
                               the magical Freycinet Peninsula. Abundant Tasmanian wildlife, pristine beaches, a
                               rich colonial history, cool-climate Tasmanian wines, and fine local produce can all be
                               enjoyed in this beautiful area.

                               A unique mix of CPE, social and recreational activities will form the 2010 Congress
                               Program. High profile speakers sourced both locally and from the mainland will
                               ensure a quality program covering a range of issues.

                               Topics delivered in 2009 included Small Business Survival Strategies, Federal
                               Budget, Environmental Accounting , Taxation Reform , Superannuation , International
                               Accounting and Audit Standards ,Human Resources, Intellectual Property, Stock
                               Market and Asset Valuation, Financial Reporting and Forensic Accounting. The 2010
                               program will once again reflect the current ‘hot issues’ for both members in practice
                               and those working in commerce and industry.

2010 Public Practice Symposium       In its third year, the highly popular NIA Public Practice Symposium will again be held
                                     in Sydney from 19 to 21 May 2010. The event will be held at The Sofitel, Sydney.

                                     While regulatory changes are still a key focus for practitioners, more and more the
                                     NIA is noticing a demand centered around improving practice efficiency and
                                     effectiveness. With this in mind, the 2010 theme will be "Tune up your practice" and a
                                     musical theme will run throughout the conference with a variety of musical acts and
                                     team building activities.

                                     This is the ultimate experience for public practitioners – the accountants equivalent of
                                     "woodstock".

                                     The 2010 event is expected to be bigger and better than ever, with a range of
                                     sessions covering superannuation, taxation, financial reporting and audit obligations.
                                     The conference will also look at the need for work life balance in order to achieve
                                     workplace    harmony      and    deliver   optimal      results   for   the     client.

                                     As the premier industry event for accountants in public practice, this Symposium has
                                     been designed to assist practitioners to operate within the rules by improving their
                                     understanding of current regulatory developments such that they are able to better
                                     manage compliance risk as well as to improve their firm’s commercial performance.

                                     In 2010, the event will feature Cafe Style Practice Improvement Workshops, allowing
                                     members in similar sized practices to work together to investigate specific issues in
                                     their practices. The Symposium provides an ideal opportunity for practitioners to skill
                                     up younger staff members, such that practitioners can be confident that all members
                                     of the practice are singing in the same key.

Financial Reporting Masterclass    The Global Financial Crisis has had serious ramifications for accounting standard
                                   setting, and understanding of corporate financial statements. Key issues to be
                                   covered include: Fair value measurement; Accounting for impairment; Stakeholder
                                   communication on financial reporting issues; and the latest from Australia’s corporate
                                   regulator, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. This event will
                                   feature a case study of Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) and how CCA has reported on a
                                   range of changes to various stakeholders in the domestic and global marketplace.
                                   Representatives from PricewaterhouseCoopers will outline a range of challenges in
                                   financial reporting, including accounting for emissions trading schemes. There will
                                   also be a presentation featuring research on contemporary financial reporting

Superannuation Masterclass         Superannuation is an area of regulation that is continually evolving. This environment
                                   of frequent change in the superannuation arena means that accountants in both public
                                   practice and companies are at the risk of falling behind in their understanding of
                                   current regulatory trends. These events provide accountants with the opportunity to
                                   update their knowledge across a range of issues related to superannuation in order to
                                   assist employees and clients within the Australian business environment. Featuring an
                                   update from the Australian Taxation Office, an update on superannuation law, a
                                   session taking you through effective legal structures as well as a session on
                                   accounting for superannuation plans. There will also be a session providing attendees
                                   with a demographic snapshot of Australia. These events have been developed to
                                   meet the requirements of the competency guidelines for auditors of Self-Managed
                                   Super Funds.


Government Accounting              The Government Accounting Masterclass has been created by the NIA to provide
Masterclass                        accountants in the Government sector with the opportunity to meet the industry’s
                                   regulators and accounting standard setters, as well as gain a deeper understanding of
                                   the issues and future directions of the International Financial Reporting Standards
                                   (IFRS) within the Australian business environment.

Training
                                    superannuation to do such things as protecting assets if a business becomes bankrupt,
                                    access superannuation benefits to assist business cash flows or sell a business and pay
                                    minimum amount of tax. Delegates will also learn how and when a client may be able to
                                    legally access their superannuation benefits now (in the circumstance of financial
                                    difficulty). Session two is structured to allow advisers to immediately provide advice to save
