2017 has been an exciting year for me. I retired from my position at Redland City after a 40-year career including 30 years in local government across three states and five councils. As is often the case, I’m busier than ever but still positively managing my work/life balance.
The Wednesday morning program was opened by Silvio Trinca, Director Road & Water Infrastructure, Logan City Council. Silvio discussed the use of smart technology for flood management and how this was utilised in recent floods in Logan. It was great to see two of our most senior SEQ engineers taking the time to present. I would also like to express my appreciation to fellow IPWEAQ Board members and Foundation trustees for attending the branch conference.
I will be stepping down from the position of SEQ Branch President and from 1 July, step into the shoes of Peter Way PSM as Chair of the NAMS Council. I consider it a great honour to have been offered Peter’s role following his retirement and aim to continue the advocacy of asset management to the public works sector.

Peter and John Howard (who is also standing down) are leaving IPWEA with an outstanding reputation and international recognition as leaders in the management of public works infrastructure.
