The High Court’s award of $2.5 million in compensation to native title holders in Timber Creek, a township in the Northern Territory, was ground-breaking
A strength of our community is the development of technical solutions by industry for industry. We currently have four Working Groups developing new and improved resources for our sector and we would like to thank everyone involved in these critical projects: • Street Design Manual (SDM) – Walkable Neighbourhoods • Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) Standards • Standard Drawings • Survey Standards
We did it again – a new record for an IPWEAQ branch conference! 195 delegates joined us in Stanthorpe which was looking renewed after much-needed rain.
I am disappointed to announce the postponement of our SEQ Branch conference scheduled for Caloundra 28-29 May. New dates to be advised shortly but likely to be September.
I am very pleased to welcome Victor Mills, Director Works & Building Services, Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council who joins the NQ Branch committee. Welcome, Victor! We look forward to working with you
A few announcements for CQ Firstly, congratulations to Mackay Regional Council, second best drinking water in the entire world (but only beaten by one point so possibly the best)! Mackay’s Water Treatment Manager, Stuart Boyd and Director of Engineering and Commercial Infrastructure, Jason Devitt travelled to the USA with water samples for judging with 100 other water samples from across the globe.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for my first IPWEAQ President’s Breakfast as your President. We had a record number of attendees – 115 on a rainy day in Brisbane with another 50+ members joining us from seven satellite breakfasts across the state hosted by Goondiwindi Regional Council, Gladstone Regional Council, Mackay Regional Council, Gympie Regional Council, Moreton Bay Regional Council and OneEng.
These are certainly challenging times. No one appears unaffected with their circumstances or plans changed but as is the very nature of our sector, we will adapt and survive; some will thrive. We do at least have some good news amidst the chaos.
