Annual BICSI Golf days are held in Brisbane, Canberra, Perth and Sydney.
Each year, around 300 members and their guests enjoy an excellent day on some of Australia’s finest golf courses including Joondalup (WA), St Michaels (NSW), Indooroopilly (Qld), Cypress Lakes (NSW), Stonecutters Ridge (NSW) and Murrumbidgee (ACT).
The very full Golf days start with an educational seminar, followed by lunch, 18 hole Ambrose-style golf competition and awards dinner, where the winners (and losers) are recognised for their golf skills.
An important part of every BICSI South Pacific Golf day is raising money for local charities. BICSI members and their guests are empathic to those in their community who are ‘struggling’ and have proven to be extremely generous in giving a helping hand.
BICSI Golf Days have been raising donations for local charities every year since their inception in 1998 in Brisbane. Over the past 12 months, over $15,000 has been raised at BICSI Golf Days for charities that included MS Australia, Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation, Roll101, and Mater Foundation.
In earlier BICSI Golf Days, other charities have included BeyondBlue, Angel Flight, Variety, Haemophilia Foundation, Miracle Babies, Kids Cancer Research Trust and Clown Doctors, to name a few.
B-Net’s are a great opportunity to network in a relaxed friendly environment at the end of a working day, enabling members to drop in for a quick drink and a chat at a local pub after work.
They have proven to be an event that many of our members have been looking for – as a place to get together with fellow professionals, as a place to do some networking, or even just a means of giving our industry some identity.
Most importantly, we ask participants to bring plenty of their business cards to exchange.
B-Quiz is a social event for local BICSI communities, getting together over some finger foods and a few beverages for a night of fun, networking and realising you know nothing about general trivia. There are no presentations or promotional marketing – just a light-hearted social event.
