2023 FinPro Leadership Program – Applications now open

March 1, 2023

Applications are NOW OPEN for our Financial Management and Leadership Development Program 2023 – ‘Rising to the Challenge’.

The FinPro Financial Management and Leadership Development Program will provide a unique opportunity for emerging leaders in Financial Management to develop the extra skills they need to move from being an ‘accountant’ to be a ‘leader’ in Local Government in Victoria.

Participants in this program will work with industry leaders to gain knowledge and practical experience.  They will gain an understanding of what is involved in being a successful manager and leader and will be given the opportunity to develop a strong peer group during the program who will then support each other as they develop their individual careers.

The Program comprises:

  • A 3 ½ day residential workshop
  • 12 month mentoring program, and
  • Monthly webinars

The Program is provided free of charge for up to 12 successful applicants.
