Joining the VCFO Association as a member is an invaluable investment of time and financial commitment. Each of the dedicated events which require attendance is designed to maximise time commitments in an effective manner (no time-wasting single networking ‘hollow-coffee catch-ups’ or suburb-based networking groups).
We are the only member organisation in Australia with the sole focus to advance and advocate for the emerging Virtual CFO sector within the accounting profession and see our members succeed.
Promotion is one of the main components of the VCFO Association’s strategy. The VCFO Association can act as an extension to your individual sales funnel and allow you to get far more reach than you can individually.
The VCFO Association’s upgraded website is the centrepiece that gives us a platform to showcase our members and attract potential clients. The ‘Find a Member’ function provides clients with an avenue to search member details, connect with them directly and book a consultation.
Blogs allow members to receive access to our high-value content guide and we both give the opportunity to and actively encourage them to write original, relevant, authentic and engaging, thought leadership articles. The purpose of this content is to attract customers. We call these our ‘digital hooks’; these draw potential clients to the site. For every piece of content, you create and post under the VCFO Association banner, you can re-purpose and fly up your own ‘flagpole’ later.
The VCFO Association has a dedicated LinkedIn page. In addition to the organic reach, we can attain as a group, we aim to start investing in paid content advertising to broaden our reach to create better cut-through into the broader business community. You can visit our LinkedIn page by visiting this link: https://www.linkedin.com/company/association-of-virtual-cfos/
We are not a training organisation, however, we meet regularly in our ‘Best Practice Forum’ and discuss the latest trends and issues relating to the accounting sector. We also have partnered with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for Accountants to deliver an online course titled ‘Virtual CFO Advanced’. This course acknowledges the VCFO Association as subject matter expert and is aimed at the broader accounting community including accounting firms and provides 16 hours of CPD credits on successful completion.

Yes, they certainly can and they certainly do.
Collaborating between members allows them to:
o Tap into Industry-specific or technical expertise that they might not have
o Capacity sharing – overflow
o White label or subcontract, so you retain your client and the client isn’t aware of the commercial dealings between members
The VCFO Association was founded in 2015.
