QWater'18 Conference

QWater'18 Conference
Call for papers open for the QLD Branch's annual conference - this year’s exciting QWater Conference will focus on “Regional Collaboration – Future Success Through Shared Learnings”

A message from the conference chair 
I would like to invite you to submit papers for this exciting QWater Conference which will focus on collaboration and the critical role knowledge-sharing can play in the development of our region and beyond. The ongoing challenge to increase the realisation of the value of water by customers in the face of economic and environmental change will require collaboration and can only be achieved when we openly share our experiences and knowledge. The Association aims to inspire a broad range of presentations focused on sharing issues that are likely to influence the future management of water. We encourage presentations from the full range of perspectives within our industry, across roles in STEM and HSE to legal, accounting and human resources as well as from organisations such as suppliers, consultants, contractors and water utilities.
The Association’s previous Queensland Conferences have been very successful and have enjoyed strong growth over the years, with over 180 people attending recent conferences. Hope to see you in November!
Paul Heaton, Director, Gold Coast Water and Waste
