Changes to IPWEA Tasmania Division Committee
For those that hadn’t heard Darren Carlson moved back to Queensland for family reasons in May 2018.
As a result of this he also resigned from the President's role of IPWEA Tasmania.
In accordance with the Rules of IPWEA (Tasmania Division) the committee confirmed Vice President Paul Breaden as President and Dino De Paoli was subsequently voted in as Vice President.
These positions will be effective until the end of the current term at the 2018 AGM, and both will be eligible for re-election to these roles.
IPWEA / AWA Stormwater Symposium
This years event held at C3 in Hobart on 22 June 2018 and was a great success.
The range of speakers and diverse topics kept up interest all day as there was something for everyone, whether it be floods and emergency management, stormwater plans and planning schemes, rainfall forecast and warning systems, or wetlands, waterways and water sensitive urban design. The organising committee of Callum Pearce-Rasmussen, Jesse Webster, Adela Parnell, Catherine Jolley, Darren Carlson and Carmel Clark did a wonderful job in putting this event together. It was also great to see the Australian Water Association and IPWEA Tasmania working together again for the mutual benefit of our associations.
2018 Asset Management Congress
IPWEA is conducting this event in Canberra on 14 & 15 August 2018.
The Congress will provide a forum for discussion that will generate and nurture ideas and lead to opportunities that will synchronise federal, state and local government infrastructure asset management.
The theme for the Congress is ‘Communities for the Future, Infrastructure for the Next Generation’.
Knowledge will be shared and feedback gathered to inform IPWEA, their National Asset Management Strategy (NAMS) and key stakeholders on future initiatives that need to be embraced and undertaken by the asset management community.
Anybody involved with Asset Management is encouraged to consider attendance at this event as it will provide excellent content and provide for debate and discussion relevant to this field.
