NSW Branch - 2018 Event Program
NSW Branch - 2018 Event Program10 Nov 2017

Our NSW Branch Committee has compiled a fantastic mix of learning opportunities for next year, packed with fresh ideas for our Members, too!

Throughout 2018 the NSW Branch will be delivering 9 technical seminars, 3 site visits, 3 regional seminars, a networking event, a major projects breakfast AND we’ll be hosting a Student Competition.

We would like to thank our 2018 Branch Sponsors who have confirmed they will be on board again for this busy year ahead. There are plenty of promotional opportunities and sponsor benefits this year, as we will look to mix things up.

We know Sydney is a busy city, so we’ll be beginning our technical seminars 30 minutes later to allow for Sydney traffic (presentations will commence at 5.30pm). Remember that our usual venue, Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club has just finished major renovations, has 450 FREE car spots, and is positioned right across the road from West Ryde train station.

To keep our Members updated with the latest concrete technology and research, we’ll be introducing an additional speaker at each seminar, completing a PhD project in concrete or a related field. So they’re not alone, we’ll be opening the doors to Institute Student Members for each technical seminar and site visit FREE of charge*.

The NSW Branch has been requested back to the Port Macquarie area, an opportunity which we are very grateful for. With an established Regional Seminar Subcommittee, this team will ensure a technical seminar of the highest quality will be delivered.

We look forward to kicking things off in February with our seminar, Supporting Structures! We’ll be covering piling, basement construction and retaining walls. We look forward to seeing our Members again, and hope you enjoy our 2018 technical program.
