2021 ACEL Annual and Financial Reports: A Message from ACEL President

17/11/21

It is a great privilege on behalf of the Australian Council for Educational Leaders (ACEL) Board to present the 2020/21 Annual Report.
The 2020/21 financial year saw no shortage of challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic significantly disrupting organisations and businesses around the world. Thanks to many years of careful stewardship and diligence from successive Boards and management teams, ACEL was well placed to respond to the many challenges and continue to serve our members. Major contributors to ACEL’s financial sustainability are our professional learning programs and conferences. The vast majority of these were unable to be run in a normal ‘in-person’ format, however, thanks to the ingenuity of the ACEL team we were able to quickly move to online offerings including for our major leadership conference. This delivered an outstanding financial result for 2020/21 with a ‘breakeven’ outcome which underlined the strength of the organisation and ability to successfully respond to even the toughest situation encountered for many, many years..
