Concrete In Australia : March 2008
FROM THE PRESIDENT A solid start to a new year 2008 is already shaping up to be a bumper year for Concrete Institute of Australia activity. By now, each Branch has conducted the first of their technical events for the year and a series of joint seminars with other specialist technical organisations is already underway. The Concrete Masonry Association of Australia, National Precast Concrete Association Australia, Australian Corrosion Association, Concrete Pipe Association of Australasia and Post-Tensioning Institute of Australia are all working closely with the Institute to offer members and the wider industry a solid bank of seminars, workshops and higher level educational opportunities. With the appointment of the Institute’s own in-house technical staff towards the end of last year, we are now well placed to continue the development of our technical education program. Ben Cosson is working with a number of the Institute’s members to develop full day workshops which focus on providing much needed information on specialist technical areas. Here in Western Australia the industry continues to experience record levels of activity and just about everyone is at the limits of their capacity dealing with new projects, satisfying demand and dealing with staff shortages. Other states are experiencing similar levels of activity. While we are all so busy, it is important that we remember the networking opportunities which the Institute provides through its regular meetings. The opportunities to meet with our colleagues, peers and industry contacts at Institute events are essential. While other organisations may be reducing their face-to-face contact, the Institute continues to expand this important membership benefit. During 2008 the Institute will be announcing several major initiatives which are all designed to increase membership benefits. A number have been in the planning stage for some time and our increased staff resources are enabling the organisation to start delivering on these important developments. If you have suggestions on how the Institute can better meet the needs of its members please contact me direct at the email address below. The Institute’s success reflects the input from our members and suggestions are always welcome.
