  • Presidents address to NPG - August 2015


    Novice Professional Committee Members,


    On behalf of the ACLCA, I would like to show my gratitude and congratulate Madam Chairman and the rest of the NPG Executive Committee for your efforts so far this year.  I have been encouraged by your dedication, commitment and enthusiasm since the inception of the NPG in February and long may it continue.  We are now moving towards the business (…and fun) end of the year in the ACLCA Calendar with the Social Events ramping up, which obviously need to be organised.


    First up in September, will see your inaugural event as an Official Committee with the upcoming Question and Answers session with Representatives from the Department of Environment Regulation – this will be an invaluable opportunity for you to network with the DER in an informal setting and learn from their wealth of experiences.  The DER A/Manager, Contaminated Sites and a Principal Contaminated Sites Officer have already confirmed they will be attending.  I am hoping this could become an annual event going forward, so get your questions ready!


    October sees the ACLCA Annual General Meeting (AGM), when the new Executive Committee in WA will be elected into Office for the 2015 – 2016 year.  The Executive Officer is currently trying to secure some high profile presentations for this event, this is one not to be missed and hopefully we will have more news on the Presenters and topics in the near future. 


    In November we have the Paul Turner Scholarship Awards (  The Paul Turner Scholarship is awarded to students undertaking projects or major assignments in the field of contaminated land or sites management, and commemorates the contribution of one of Western Australia's respected industry members, Paul Turner, who passed away in November 2010.  The event is attended by member company consultants, Contaminated Sites Auditors, members of the Department of Environment Regulation contaminated sites branch, members of the Departments of Water and Health, thus affording opportunity for student finalists the opportunity to network and socialise and discuss potential future career pathways.  The event is followed by “The Auditors Drinks”  and it will give you guys access to the Who’s Who in our Industry here in WA and Nationally.


    We round it all off in December with the Christmas Quiz at the Oxford Hotel in Leederville, the highlight of the ACLCA Social Calendar, where consultants from all of the member companies go head to head to compete to be crowned Consultancy of the Year (…at table quizzes!).  There are usually 130 – 140 consultants in attendance and it is always a good night with great prizes from our suppliers and sponsors.


    I hope to see you all at the Q&A Session next month, it is your night, so make the most of the opportunity and enjoy yourselves. 


    Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.


    Thanks again, you should be proud of yourselves.


    Kind regards
