As a Non-Profit Organization, our Mission includes publicly sharing much of the collective knowledge of our organization through this website. However, our main knowledgebase is contained within our Private Network.
Membership not only accesses this knowledge, but also our private events which are complimentary to members.
Our commitment to supporting the Arts includes our #OzDayNYC Black Tie Performing Arts Awards, aka "The Joeys".
The format of this standing black tie reception creates a highly accessible fundraising event for all Australians to attend and support Australian artists.
Our Members transfer millions of dollars every year for business and personal needs. Based on this volume, a preferred rate on FOREX transfers has been negotiated with OFX (OzFOREX)
