The WA NPG focus area group is made up of contaminated land consultants within their first five years of consulting. The aim of the group is to provide the opportunity to network with other consultants within the industry, keep up to date with the goings on within our industry, attend monthly meetings and organize the ACLCA social functions! New events are always being introduced so joining the NPG allows individuals to have their say and assist with organising events and information sessions that will benefit ACLCA members.
