Over the past decade Hill Rogers has developed deep expertise working with clients in Australia’s not-for-profit sector. As part of this focus we’ve recently joined forces with Science & Technology Australia (STA) – Australia’s peak body in science and technology – providing a range of strategic and financial benefits to STA members.

STA represents more than 60,000 Australian scientists and technologists working across all scientific disciplines. With 64 member organisations in Australia, and numerous global alignments, it’s a highly respected and influential contributor to public policy debate. The new partnership allows STA members to access preferred rates when calling upon Hill Rogers’ expertise in managing both their personal and business finances. Members also receive a complimentary two-hour first consultation, regular newsletters and invitations to Hill Rogers events such as the popular Twilight Seminar sessions.

The partnership was the result of a meeting between Vishal Modi and Andrew Lam from Hill Rogers and Science & Technology Australia CEO, Kylie Walker, at a Not-For-Profit conference in Brisbane in February 2017.

 “STA is a great organisation working towards economic, environmental, health and social benefits for all Australians,” said Andrew Lam, Director at Hill Rogers. “Their core values align very closely with our own, and we both have a strong interest in the not-for-profit sector, so the partnership makes considerable sense. We’re really proud to be able to help STA members and look forward to being part of the sustained success of Australia’s science and technology community.”

Kylie Walker agrees, explaining that the arrangement is a true partnership, providing benefits both for STA members and an opportunity for Hill Rogers to get to know scientific and technological associations and societies, research entities and other science sector organisations. “We’re excited by the opportunities this partnership provides for STA’s membership to improve their financial and risk management practices, but it’s also an opportunity for Hill Rogers. Working together I have no doubt it will help to open up different ways of thinking and allow Hill Rogers to further shape its NFP service offering to respond to the needs of the large and unique science, technology, engineering and mathematics sector. It really is a win-win situation for everyone involved – and for Australia’s future.”
