Fifty-year veteran adviser and former AFA president Joe Nowak had been recognised as the winner of the Michael Murphy award.
Mr Nowak was awarded with the ‘Best and Fairest’ accolade at the AFA National Adviser conference in Cairns.
AFA chief executive Brad Fox said Mr Nowak is an “exemplary member” of the AFA community and “sets an outstanding example” to many members.
“[Mr Nowak’s] commitment to his clients, his business, his community and the AFA has made an immense impact on the lives of many and continues to do so,” Mr Fox said.
Mr Fox also said Mr Nowak has been a keen participant on legislative and regulatory issues affecting financial advice for more than 40 years after joining the AFA in 1972.
“He has a unique ability to pick up the phone or knock on the door of a politician and give them a grassroots understanding of how proposed changes are likely to succeed or fail,” he said.
The accolade was named in honour of the late Michael Murphy, a long-standing member of the AFA.
