President’s Message

March 4th, 2024

Dear Member

It is with great pleasure and an honour that I am writing to you in my capacity as President. This follows the resignation of Dr Andrew Hanak KC.  On behalf of CIArb Australia, I thank Andrew for his service.

Having previously served as Company Secretary, I am grateful for the trust in me expressed by fellow Councillors with this appointment, and the many messages of support from members and colleagues both across Australia and internationally.

I am also very pleased to announce the appointment and return of Gianna Totaro as our CEO.

Together, the Board and Management of CIArb Australia, are setting new objectives and priorities as outlined in our 2024 Strategic Plan and commit ourselves to implementing them with energy and experience.

We have launched the year with another successful Vis Pre-Moot organised by the CIArb Young Members Group led by its Chair, Kristian Maley and hosted by Clifford Chance and Herbert Smith Freehills

I am also pleased to announce we have entered into another Joint Venture with the East Asia and Singapore branches to deliver the CIArb Asia Pacific Diploma in International Arbitration

Over the next few months you will see us return to a pre-Covid tempo of engagement and initiatives that will benefit members and the various communities we serve.

Kind regards,


Nathan Landis
President
