The Annual Country Meeting continues to be one of the most popular events on the IPWEA WA calendar, and is a chance for our South West branch and members to showcase the beautiful south west regions of Western Australia. Our very popular one day format includes a combination of presentations in the morning followed by site visits throughout the day.
The 2021 Annual Country Meeting will be held in the beautiful City of Mandurah, and will focus on the City’s metamorphasis from a sleepy little fishing town with river frontage to one of the most popular places to live, play and holiday!
The program focusses on the City of Mandurah’s Waterfront Redevelopment Project which includes:
A new Skate & Activity Space
A new Play Space
The iconic Estuary Pool
The Smart Street Mall Upgrade
A site tour through the above projects, providing delegates with a first hand view of the redevelopment project
The program can be viewed by clicking on the “Program” tab at bottom of this email, or you can download an event flyer here.
The ever popular Gala Dinner has been revamped this year! Join us on the SS Minnow for pre-dinner drinks as we head out to Gilligan’s Island on a river cruise that will showcase the City’s beautiful water frontage (limited numbers available). Alternatively, delegates can meet us directly at the beautiful The Cut Tavern (formally the Jolly Frog) where there will be good food, great company, lots of laughs and a beautiful river view guaranteed.
The Gala Dinner will also include the “Give a Shirt” Charity Auction” started in 2018 when the wonderfully loud purple shirt worn by then President Ian Daniels was auctioned off and raised funds for the Smith Family. In the 3 years we have been holding the Auction, we have raised a total of $1,230 which have been donated to various charities.
The intent of the auction is similar to the “Magic Tie” that IPWEA Australasia auctions off at the International Public Works Conference, with proceeds going to a charity of choice. The winning bid gets to keep the shirt for the year and then returns it the following year to be re-auctioned off for another good cause.
Online/livestreaming registrations will be available to delegates for the presentations as we continue to improve our services to members.
