ANNUAL REPORT 2020/2021
04 November 2021 | National
Following the successful launch of AMCA Australia from 1 July 2021, it is with great pride in the past and optimism for the future that I present the final annual report for the entity trading as AMCA Victoria.
Much of the past twelve months have been spent preparing for the transition of all AMCA state entities into a single, truly national industry association for leading HVAC businesses and suppliers.
From devising new membership structures to consolidating financial accounts, it has been an enormous effort from the team both within Victoria and across the country.
Despite the challenges and complexities that such an endeavour entails, I am pleased to say that it has been a truly uniting experience that will hold the association in good stead for years to come.
Of course, it is impossible these days to write an annual report without mentioning the impacts of COVID-19.
Throughout the year, we have continued to focus on responding to and supporting members needs throughout the pandemic.
Working with government, regulators, industry colleagues and others, we have successfully advocated for our industry to be classified as an essential service while ensuring members have the most accurate and up-to-date information about ever-changing operating conditions.
Unavoidably, however, for the second year in a row, many of the association’s regular activities have been disrupted or cancelled, especially our training and events program.
But, if there is a silver lining, such disappointment just reinforces the value one gets from having the chance to interact, exchange information, and enjoy the company of industry colleagues.
As an association, we certainly look forward to providing these opportunities again soon.
Looking forward, as the AMCA embarks on a new beginning, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the board of directors and team for their diligence, adaptability, and hard work throughout a tough year.
Personally, I feel very privileged to have been part of such a supportive and genuinely collaborative team, united by a shared vision for a stronger, more prosperous and sustainable HVAC industry for all members. Though I admit to a touch of sadness at the loss of a stand-alone AMCA Victoria, I am more excited by the promise of a stronger association that will be able to serve all members for decades into the future.
President, AMCA Victoria
