Meet David!

PIA’s CEO might be new but he’s also a familiar face, having worked as our COO for six years alongside Kirsty Kelly.

Click the thumbnail below to watch David talk a little about his new role and some of the big things coming up for PIA in the next couple of months:

"Being a PIA member helps me get more from my planning career and gives me greater career satisfaction. I would not have such as wide range of opportunities for networking and access to up to date knowledge and training without PIA membership. I enjoy being an active member of the institute in the ACT, and where I get a chance, at the national level as well."
