Last Meeting - Thursday 5 August 2021

Held in Invercargill on Thursday 5 August.

We had a cracker line up of speakers on topics from how to deliver amongst a lower south island construction boom, what’s happening in water reform and thoughts on green energy. We also heard from IPWEA NZ President and Head of Asset Management at Auckland Transport – Myles Lind.

Lunch was sponsored by The Building Intelligence Group and the venue was the Southland Cricket Pavilion.

Why should I attend?

Updates will be provided by IPWEA NZ 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.

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
