VIC YWP Regional Conference 2020 - Our Water Future
A two day conference designed by and for young water professionals but open to anyone interested! A great opportunity to learn new skills, attend informative seminars, visit some great sites and have the ultimate networking opportunity as you're away for an overnight stay, share meals and are traveling jointly by bus!

Join our VIC Young Water Professionals at the upcoming regional conference, taking place over a day and a half across multiple locations in the Gippsland area; it promises to be insightful, collaborative and educational.

Don't miss out and register early this conference is capped at 70 participants.

The Regional Conference is a great way for not only young water professionals to network and learn more about the water industry - this conference welcomes anyone to attend!

You will hear about experiences, successes and challenges faced by water authorities and their providers across regional Victoria whilst developing tangible skills.

Even though the conference is designed for young water professionals (classified U35 or <10 years in water industry) we certainly welcome anyone keen on learning more about current trends in the industry and wanting to network with fellow water professionals over the two days.
