Launch of Gallipoli & Beyond

On 11 April I was honoured to address over 140 constituents at the launch of the Centenary of Anzac Program, Gallipoli and Beyond.  One of thirteen successful grant applicants under the Federal Government's Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program, Gallipoli & Beyond has developed a range of local events to commemorate WWI.  I am pictured at the launch with guests including the Member for Hawthorn John Pesutto, Chairperson of Gallipoli & Beyond, Dr Tanya Warms, Boroondara Mayor Coral Ross and Ted Baillieu. At the launch I was presented with a beautiful book, Boroondara Remembers, which tells the personal stories of WWI from a local perspective, and I am pictured with the book's authors and to my right with two students from local schools who will be attending commemorations in Gallipoli.

Visit to the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial

On 10 April I was very pleased to welcome to Kooyong His Excellency Pär Ahlberger, Ambassador of Sweden to Australia. The Ambassador and I visited the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial in Kew to pay tribute to the former Swedish diplomat, who is credited with having saved tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews during the Holocaust. I appreciated learning more about the Ambassador’s efforts directed at honouring Raoul Wallenberg’s legacy.

Community Council for Australia (CCA) Roundtable

It was a pleasure to join the CCA for their roundtable in Canberra on 8 April. As an independent membership organisation, the CCA plays a constructive and critical role in building collaboration between Government and the not-for-profit sector.   There are more than 60,000 active not-for-profit organisations in Australia who contribute 3.8 per cent to GDP, have $107 billion in turnover, $176 billion in assets and employ over one million people. The main themes I touched on at the roundtable were the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), our achievements and ongoing focus on red tape reduction, the ‘in Australia’ measure, and our recently released tax discussion paper and its chapter on the not-for-profit sector. I am pictured with Tim Costello, CEO World Vision and David Crosbie, CEO CCA.

St Columbs awarded Anzac Centenary Local Grant

On Tuesday 31 March I visited St Columbs Anglican Church in Hawthorn to see first hand the restoration work that is being undertaken to the church's AIF leadlight windows and honour boards as part of the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program. The Kooyong Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program committee which I chaired was delighted with the interest in this program from local community organisations such as St Columbs.  The committee approved 13 applications for funding  and I look forward to joining the local community at commemorations in Kooyong that will honour our nation’s centenary of service and mark the nation-defining events of the Centenary of Anzac, in ways of which we can all be proud. Find out more about the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program and successful grant applicants here. I am pictured at St Columbs with Rev Mike Flynn, David and Jenny Bock and Liz Yewers.

Launch of the Tax Discussion Paper

On March 30, Josh joined the Treasurer, the Hon Joe Hockey MP, when he released a tax discussion paper, ‘Re:think’, to start a conversation about how we bring a tax system, which still resembles how it looked in the 1950s, into the new century. The tax discussion paper, begins a national conversation on how we create a tax system that supports higher economic growth and living standards, improves our international competiveness and adjusts to a digitalised economy. Josh is pictured here with the Treasurer at the launch in Melbourne hosted by the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS).

The sector is one of the largest contributors to Australia’s company tax receipts, and maintaining strong investment in mining is vital to the future prosperity of all Australians. Josh is pictured here speaking at the conference.
