Division Report Brian Lynn - WA President
Being State President of the SCLAA (WA) in 2018 has been a pleasure and a privilege! This is in no small part due of to the wonderful industry representatives with whom I had the pleasure of collaborating to deliver a varied and extensive range of events.
We aim to offer you a similar breadth of experiences and membership value in 2018. Watch out for the first event in early February, and particularly for the 2018 Transport, Supply Chain and Logistics Awards in April.
Also it was due to you, the association's members and affiliates who supported these events in large numbers, and with boundless enthusiasm.
Brochures for the latter event will be available shortly.
I'm pleased that in 2017 the SCLAA (WA) was were able to offer more than fifteen events and webinars to its members, ranging from site visits and presentations to webinars and networking opportunities, and of course the Peter Smith Memorial Golf Day (pictured below). Particularly memorable were July's Roy Hill event at Burswood, the trip to Qantas Catering, Lewis Trigger 'Managing Herbie' and Aldi's presentation at Curtin. We saw the Toll Express facility at the airport, the Next DC Data Centre, Instant Waste's processing plant and Richgro's amazing environmentally conscious Jandakot centre.
The Awards being run jointly by SCLAA and CILTA will provide a great opportunity for you to reward showcase your organisation's talent and achievements, and also an excellent advertising and sponsorship opportunity. At the event at the Matilda Bay Restaurant, Senior Government officials will witness the presentation of awards in the following categories: Innovation, Excellence in Transport, Supply Chain and Logistics, Excellence in Training and Professional Development and most notably the Young Professional. Get in touch with the association if you'd like more information on the Awards. Before all of this comes (hopefully for most of us) the opportunity for a well-earned rest. On this note I'd like to wish all of you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and to look forward to your continuing support for the SCLAA!"
