WA Gala Award Winners 2016

 In Events

Thank you to all those who attended last week’s 2016 WA Gala Awards. The night was a huge success with close to 450 in attendance at Crown Perth.

The Gala Awards, is an occasion to recognise and reward our West Australian members, on the back of their success over the past financial year. In what has been somewhat of a tricky year, for the industry and market, the results you’ve all demonstrated have been impressive to say the least.

To the finalists: You should be proud, of your outstanding accomplishments. We strongly encourage you to continue striving for excellence in all that you do and to take advantage of opportunities to surround yourself with others to help you continue that journey.

For a list of all the finalists and winners, please scroll to the end of this post.



Next year all AFG members will be invited to the AFG National Broker Conference in Sydney. It is destined to be one of the biggest broker gatherings ever held in Australia. We’re anticipating over 1,000 brokers will be in attendance.

Next year’s Masterclass and State Broker Award functions will be incorporated into this National Conference. With everyone coming together on the last night for a Grand Closing Gala Event.

The access to your peers and lenders will be unprecedented. It’s a conference that we’re thrilled to be able to offer to so many. Once registrations open we encourage you to secure your spot early as places will be limited.

Keep an eye on your inbox in the coming months for further information.

We’re looking forward to bringing all of our people together in June 2017.
