Join us for regular after-work sundowner drinks and informal networking hosted every month by the AWA SA Young Water Professionals. Special guest speakers will be invited throughout the series to explore a wide range of topics through a short presentation and discussion.
These events are open to anyone with an interest in the water industry and present an opportunity to meet and catch up with other professionals. No ticket or registration required, there’s a bar available to purchase your own drinks.
