Professional Development 28 May

Written on the 28 May 2020 by SAFCA

Covid-19 has caused the cancellation of the SAFCA and FCA conferences in 2020. To compensate, we are working towards offering you plenty of PD opportunities.


Beyond Blue wellbeing webinar

1st June, 1.30pm-2.30pm - FCA and Beyond Blue - 1 hour webinar on financial counselling wellbeing for our SA and NT members.
Beyond Blue, in consultation with the State and Territory financial counselling associations, is offering financial counsellors specially tailored "wellbeing webinars" to help us navigate through these challenging times. Presented by Michael Hanlon, Workplace Engagement Manager at Beyond Blue, these webinars will cover strategies you can use to monitor and maintain your own mental health. We are all adjusting to rapidly changing environments working from home and then returning to a new "normal" workplace and these will be a good chance to pause and reflect on what this means for us.
