The NSW/ACT Branch currently comprises of 111 members, from a variety of backgrounds including private citizens, public servants, consultants, academics and monitoring equipment manufacturers and suppliers. The Branch committee comprises 10 members, also from a range of professional backgrounds, including consultancies, academia and local government.
The Branch holds regular committee meetings, either monthly or bimonthly, which are used to plan technical events for our members. Our meetings are usually held on the 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of the month at 5pm, and typically hosted via teleconference or webinar. We do try and meet face to face when possible. If you would like more information on our Branch meetings, please contact our Branch Secretary.
Our technical events provide an excellent opportunity for professional development, and we encourage all CASANZ members and non-members to come along. We aim to provide four technical events per year, including an end-of-year event associated with our Annual General Meeting (AGM). Our events also provide an opportunity to catch up with familiar faces and network within the broader air quality community. We strongly encourage members to get in touch with suggestions for technical events, including topics of interest, potential speakers and even recommendations for venues or tour-based events.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our members for your ongoing support. Please continue to support the society by:
Attending technical events and promoting events to your wider network.
