Thanks to everyone who supported our fantastic Public Works Conference last week!
Delegates enjoyed presentations by a host of speakers from across the public works spectrum and took the opportunity to network with colleagues and a range of sector providers. One of many highlights was our Young Member’s closing session with its focus on the challenge of designing buildings, infrastructure and communities for 2050.

My thanks go to our 2017 Conference Committee for their hard work to stage another successful event and to all our members who attended.
Your support is much appreciated, particularly when a number of private Conferences are being promoted to the sector. Proceeds from our Conference support your IPWEA (Vic) – proceeds from private Conferences support the event organisers.
Planning for our 2018 Conference will begin soon, so if you have any ideas please contact our CEO via firstname.lastname@example.org
