Young Achievers Award Presentations
One of our most important annual events, the 2019 ACLCA NSW Young Achievers Award Presentation Night, is being held on Wednesday 31 July 2019. Out of the 13 abstracts received, four have been selected for presentation, with the winner receiving $500 in cash; their name on the coveted trophy; a ticket to our End of Year Party; AND up to $2,000 in sponsorship to attend and present at the 2019 CleanUp conference being held in Adelaide in September this year! The presentations will be judged by selected representatives from our industry, including: Arminda Ryan: Arminda in the NSW EPAs Director of Contaminated Land Management and has been working in contaminated land for over 20 years in consulting, regulation and policy.Alex Pulkownik: Alex is the coordinator of CSARM courses run by UTS and is an academic eco-toxicologist.Jason Clay: Jason is a senior principal at Senversa and is a state accredited Contaminated Site Auditor in NSW and WA, as well as being a Certified Environmental Practitioner (Specialist in Site Contamination).
All 13 abstracts received this year were of exceptional quality and we would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit. They not only demonstrate that the future of our industry is bright, but also that our young professionals are being given the opportunity to work on some really interesting projects! Although choosing only four for presentation was difficult, those listed below were selected:
Nicholas Grbich – EI Australia: “Isotopic Analysis to Differentiate Ground-Gas Sources on a Contaminated Site”.
Tara Stephens – WSP: “Poo to Parkland: CLM Investigations Paving the Way to Land Restoration”.
Sarah Eccleshall – GHD: “West Belconnen Resource Management Centre – Not Your Average Well Installation”.
