Water Policy Dialogue -
On 28 April 2016 the Australian Water Association South Australian Branch and the Water Industry Alliance
recently held the first South Australian Water Policy Dialogue event, with a new conference
format. The Dialogue encouraged discussion and outcomes from the delegates who could be fully
interactive with key industry leaders and policy influencers. Three streams were held - research, industry and governance - and all generated lively discussion
and good outcomes that were the content for the white paper.

SA Mentoring program
The Australian water industry is facing a significant skills challenge requiring both recruitment and retention strategies. The water industry would encounter serious workforce loss in the medium to long term future unless there was an explicit attempt to transfer tacit knowledge and consequently retain skills and knowledge within the industry.
This Mentoring program will be an effective way to develop skills via the transfer of knowledge from a more experienced mentor and a less experienced mentee.
