There will also be industry updates from IPWEA and presentations from around the south island.


Why should I attend?

Updates will be provided by the IPWEA Board along with presentations from both government and private sector professionals from around the South Island. Keep your networks strong, be inspired, and benefit from our speakers perspectives and experiences.  Agenda 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 way to connect, be inspired, discuss difficulties and learn solutions - for free!  They are designed to expose us to new ideas, reinforce a sense of community in public works, and re-energise us for the task ahead!

Young IPWEA  we strongly encourage you to extend this learning opportunity to your younger team members.

Together we can build the next generation of public works professionals
