While we have been talking extensively about the upcoming AIB conference which is just weeks away, are you aware that the National Awards are nestled right in the middle of the conference – at the same location? Take a look at this short video piece:

This year will be special with an outstanding band to entertain and dance to after the presentations as well as something uniquely Australian (without giving too much away!) Tickets can be purchased here, however I suggest you get in quickly so as not to be disappointed.

In the meantime, you must make the effort to come along to Constructing Our World (September 19/20). The conference promises to deliver great value for money with a very, very strong line up of speakers and forums. We have purposely priced the event to attract as many people as possible across many disciplines in the industry.

Constructing Our World provides one of your best opportunities this year to receive the latest update on what is happening in terms of the inquiries into building quality and government plans. Our team have set aside time on the second day to provide this important update and allow Q & A’s. It will also be an opportunity for you to consult with those working hard on behalf of the industry to input into the proposed legislative and other changes governments are considering. Many of the speakers will be touching on subjects related to the recommendations of the Shergold-Weir Report including CPD, defects and building standards.

Plus, we will hear from one of Australia’s most respected financial writers on the state of our industry and its prospects for the short and medium term. I really hope to see you there and in doing so, supporting your organisation.

Have a great weekend ahead everyone.
