"Being involved with IPWEA and being able to network with more experienced public works professionals is a great part of being a member, although to date I feel that my involvement in the development of Young IPWEA in Vic has been a highlight, and something I will look back on and cherish as a very valuable experience...."
Kurt Pitts, Acting Team Leader Infrastructure Services,
Baw Baw Shire Council

“As a member of the IPWEA, I had the opportunity to host undergraduate work-placement students. I found it particularly rewarding giving them the hands-on public works industry perspective not covered academically..."
