May 8 [Mate] is a great date to start our 2024 Fundraising and announce our Volunteering program!

In 2024 we are lifting our technology game to better serve our current and future membership. Whether a member has been in the United States for ten days or ten years, our non-profit is focused on delivering access to the knowledge and connections they need to take their career to the next level.

We have already invested in AI to open up our extensive knowledge base to members. Our “AI Joey” project, which better connects members has already delivered measurable results.

Not only will our AI Joey project delver better services for members, but it is an opportunity companies to better reach our membership by Joey referring compelling products and services as part of a member’s due diligence process.

When you consider investing a total of $50,000 over the next five years will allow us to remain a zero-employee non-profit, implementing A I technology is an astute and fiscally responsible move. Therefore, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support this and our other charitable activities. Any donation is gratefully appreciated.

Let the Volunteering Begin!

Among the charitable activities that are at the core of our organization are our Ambassador, Disaster Relief, Education, Multimedia and Volunteering programs. Volunteering for a U.S. based Australian non-profit organization is a great way to help build and strengthen our Community.

With the recent implementation of our Microsoft Dynamics Fundraising and Engagement CRM software, we are now able to effectively manage hundreds of volunteers across multiple charitable activities.

Working together, we can create real impact through volunteering, and highlight Australians making a difference in the broader US community.

How you can support the Community

Volunteering can take many forms. Sometimes a suggestion for how our organization can support a cause can lead to great things.

Perhaps you have free time to assist with an event? Over the coming months we will hosting a series of live and virtual events that will need volunteers to assist with logistics, and virtual check-ins.

Our Pro Bono Legal Program for Australian lawyers is a win-win for the Community. We need supervising attorneys to assist Australian lawyers meet the 50-hour pro bono requirement to be admitted to the Bar. An investment of less than ten hours by an admitted US lawyer over several weeks also helps our members by strengthening our legal resources. It is all done virtually through SharePoint, and you can perform the hours outside of business hours.

We recently announced grants of up to $50,000 Google advertising to Support Australian Artists. You can also support these Australian artists by checking our Events Calendar to see when and where Australians will be performing. By purchasing a ticket, you are directly supporting Australian Artists and ensuring future performances.

If any of the above resonates with you, or you have your own idea on a volunteering opportunity you would like to support, email [email protected] as we would love to hear from you.

We thank you for your support!
