Why Should I Attend?

Keynote presenter: Edward Guy.
Edward is a civil engineer and founder of Rationale Limited. As a member of NZ Treasury’s National Infrastructure Advisory Board Edward is uniquely placed to update branch members on the challenges and opportunities facing New Zealand infrastructure practitioners. Edward will provide insight on whether we are on the right path in terms of infrastructure management and investment.

Also, updates will be provided by the IPWEA Board along with presentations from both government and private sector professionals from around the South Island.

– Full agenda and presentation details to come.

The benefits of staying connected with other professionals who are active in our industry are huge. Our busy workloads can sometimes leave us feeling isolated. Branch meetings are a great, low cost, way to improve productivity. They provide exposure to new ideas and re-energise us for the task ahead!
