Once a year African Professionals of Australia holds a formal Gala ball night bringing together its members and consultative partners, and this year’s event will take place on Saturday September 1st, 2012 at the Novotel Hotel Perth Langley, Adelaide Terrace, Perth. This year Gala ball theme is ““Africa- Rising to Prosperity”. We believe it is time African countries uses their natural resources for significant economic empowerment of the continent and mitigate the resource curse phenomenon.
The Gala night is expected to attract a number of Africans working in diverse professions including engineering, accounting, medicine, education, information technology and marketing. In addition, the Gala night expects a significant number of our consultative partners including Diplomats, Senior federal Government Leaders, community leaders, Federal MP's and Resource Company CEO’s.
