The EAQP presented the first of a series of informal sessions, introducing EAQPs to some of the faces of CASANZ.
Francine Manansala – Society President
It can be intimidating starting your career in a tight-knit industry where everyone seems to know each other – it’s not always easy finding out who to talk to for technical and career advice, or mentoring.
This series is aimed at introducing EAQPs to some of the more established members of CASANZ, enabling professional relationships and ensuring there will be more than a few familiar faces at CASANZ 2021!
The first session will feature an informal presentation and Q&A from the current CASANZ President, Francine Manansala, providing some insight on:
- How she got started in the air quality industry
- Career highlights and challenges
- Francine’s CASANZ journey and ambitions
- Thoughts on how EAQPs can meaningfully contribute to CASANZ
We hope you can join us for what should prove to be an insightful session, and an easy way to learn more about your fellow CASANZ members!
Please direct any enquiries or suggestions for future events and sessions to Kirsty Tanner via email, and make sure to get involved with the conversation and knowledge sharing on the CASANZ EAQP Linkedin forum.
Francine first joined CASANZ when she started her professional career in the air quality industry in 2008. She joined the NSW/ACT Committee and became the Branch Secretary in 2012. She went on to become the Branch President in 2016 whilst also serving as the Society’s Secretary on the Executive. She became the Society’s President in 2019. She has seen many changes over her 10+ years in CASANZ and is passionate about the Society and its future. With a strong Executive, Council and administration team beside her, as well as supportive membership, she is confident that CASANZ will continue to evolve and remain relevant to those interested in air quality issues.
Francine started her professional air quality career in her last year of study at Macquarie University. She began as a graduate at Holmes Air Sciences in Sydney which then became PAEHolmes, Pacific Environment and was finally bought by ERM. Francine then left ERM in 2019 and moved in EMM and has been there for just over a year. Her key areas of expertise are the preparation of air quality impact assessment and emission and dispersion modelling and evaluation. She has enjoyed working with model developers to solve complex technical problems on some of Sydney’s largest infrastructure projects.
