Welcome to the July edition of the HACCI Hermes Enews.
July is traditionally a quieter month for HACCI, whilst most of our members enjoy the beautiful Mediterranean sunshine, we have been very busy behind the scenes.
We aim to launch our newly updated website in September. The new website will offer features for online membership payments, event bookings and access to an online business directory, and of course it will have all our latest news.
In the coming month we will also be launching the HACCI Excellence Awards nomination process including award nomination information and selection criteria. We will also be introducing a new award category, Women of Influence. For more information please contact the HACCI Office on firstname.lastname@example.org
Our next event will be held on 18 August as we celebrate HACCI Young Professionals Network's (HYPN) third anniversary. Our HYPN programs continue to grow and strengthen with over 100 Young Professionals participating in our mentoring program over the last three years. We continue to place interns into host organisations, with a growing demand for more organisation to take part. If you would like to get involved in the HACCI Internship Program please email email@example.com for more information.

Business Insights Series
The Snowdome Foundation is fortunate to be the Charity Partner for the Wogs at Work VIP opening night at The Athenaeum Theatre in September. The writer and star, Nick Giannopoulos, is a friend of Professor Miles Prince and a passionate supporter of his and Snowdome’s efforts to find a cure for blood cancers. Professor Miles Prince is a leading blood cancer specialist and is well connected with the Hellenic Community.
Formed in 2010, the Snowdome Foundation is dedicated to improving outcomes for Australians with blood cancers – leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Blood cancers are the third highest cause of death from cancer in Australia, and sadly Australia is leading the world with the fastest growth of new diagnoses. Blood cancers don’t discriminate. Unlike other cancers, routine screening and public health awareness campaigns won’t reduce anyone’s risk of developing them. Australian blood cancer patients need access to next-generation treatments to help them live longer, better lives.
To date, Snowdome has raised over $20 million to help support 254 patients gain access to next-generation treatments through 15 clinical trials and facilitate 160 patients to receive personalised treatments. These outstanding results have been achieved whilst maintaining less than 15% expenses to revenue (industry best standard) to enable the vast majority of raised funds to be directed to Australian blood research.
Last year, the Snowdome Foundation in collaboration with Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision received the inaugural National Telstra Business Award – Charity Division recognising they run an excellent business.
Your donation will support world-class medical research to help ‘make hope real’ in the fight against blood cancers. For more information visit the Snowdone Foundation website.
FIND OUT HOW AUSTRALIA IS CHANGING
SBS News has introduced an innovative interactive tool by compiling data from the 2016 Census for Australians to explore the results and findings of the recently released census data by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
The SBS Census Explorer tool allows users to go behind the statistics to learn more about who they are and where they’re heading as one of the most multicultural countries in the world. It will help all Australians to discover how Australia is changing, engaging with a rich interactive visual portrait of who we are, where we live, where we come from and the languages we speak.
