RMA is pleased to announce that key Victorian Senator, Jane Hume, will be addressing our Melbourne-based members on 23 August 2017.

The session will be hosted by NAB and moderated by NAB's Manager of Government Affairs, Chris Venus.

Senator Hume is a Senator for Victoria (Lib). During the current Parliament she is Chair of the powerful Senate Economics Legislation Committee. This committee inquires into legislation on tax, corporate and competition reforms and any changes to the regulatory architecture relating to financial services.

Recently, the committee inquired into the provisions of the Bank Levy which was a key component of the 2017 Federal Budget.

The Q and A with Senator Hume will be an interesting opportunity for RMA members to be briefed on the various inquiries into the financial services and superannuation sectors, and to hear her assessment of the state of affairs between the Parliament and the banking sector.

This a rare opportunity for our RMA Melbourne members.

Senator Hume was elected to the Australian Senate in July 2016. She is one of only a small number of MPs who have worked in our sector. She brings to her position crucial knowledge of the workings of banking and superannuation policy and practice, having worked in our sector for 20 years.
