New Business Manager, New Bursar
Being the Business Manager or Bursar of an Independent school is a complex and challenging role. New Business Managers and Bursars can find themselves overwhelmed by the range of issues they need to consider on a day-to-day basis, as well as the amount of detailed knowledge required about each of these issues. They sometimes struggle to find out what it is that they do not know and where they can turn for advice and support.
The New Business Managers’ Program aims to provide participants with an overview of the wide range of tasks that fall to a Business Manager or Bursar, as well as delving into the details of some of the most crucial aspects of the role. This two-day program is a joint initiative between the Association of School Bursars and Administrators (VIC) Inc. (ASBAV) and Independent Schools Victoria (ISV), and is targeted at those Business Managers and Bursars who have been in their role for less than twelve months.
Previous participants' feedback about the program:

- strong knowledge of the role in the context of independent schools
- expanded network of support.
Presenters will consist of the President and members of the ASBAV State Committee and the Chief Executive and Heads of ISV. Participants will also hear from experienced business managers, as well as other expert staff from ISV, and will be provided with the opportunity to discuss issues of relevance to their particular situation in an open and supportive environment.
