Business Managers Victoria (BMV) hold an Annual Conference each year for our members. Usually the program commences on a Wednesday afternoon and concludes on the Friday afternoon.

Our theme changes annually and is focused on the development of our Members.

Delegates are able to tailor their professional learning by choosing their sessions for the Thursday conference program. Sessions include up to date information on issues currently affecting Business Managers and HR & Finance Professionals working in Schools. The conference may address issues such as Leadership, Mindfulness, Probity, Technology, Health & Wellbeing, Industry sessions and more!

A trade show is held concurrently with the conference which provides access to the latest information on resources available to schools in Victoria.

Conference 2021!

As some of you may have heard through recent media reports, the Pullman Albert Park has now been allocated as a quarantine / repatriation hotel.

This means the hotel will not be available for conferencing or accommodation for the first half of the year.

The theme for the conference "Its a Balancing Act" continues to be very relevant!

In keeping with this theme, we are delighted to announce that BMV committee have been able to reschedule the conference for:

Monday 10 May to Wednesday 12 May 2021
Hotel Sofitel, Melbourne

The conference and exhibition will look a little bit different due to the change in venue, dates and covid safe practices, but everything you love about the BMV event will remain!

Monday - Exhibition, registration and welcome dinner
Tuesday - Full day conference and gala dinner
Wednesday - Half day conference

The committee are embracing this years event as a unique "one off" to give members a chance to reconnect after such a long time without networking and professional development opportunities. The Sofitel is a beautiful property and we are all excited to show you what it has to offer.
