The ACT Committee gives members the opportunity to develop strategies to tackle local issues as well as contribute to the national agenda. Committee participants are often called upon to represent Consult Australia in local engagement activities (including meetings with government agencies etc). The list of current ACT Committee participants is available on our roundtables, committees & forums page.

To help the broader membership understand the activities of the ACT Committee, here are the 3 key issues discussed at last meeting:

  1. Resourcing - The ACT Committee discussed the need to balance resourcing challenges with looking after our people.
  2. Engagement - The ACT Committee noted the emerging challenges with quality of engagement with clients and services providers.
  3. Registration - The ACT Committee discussed that registration of engineers is a complex issue, which will require careful implementation by governments.
