What the VIC Committee does

The VIC 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 VIC Committee meets monthly.

Latest 'top 3 takeaways'

The 'top 3 takeaways' summarise key issues discussed at the last meeting. These are to help the broader membership understand the activities of the VIC Committee.

  1. Civil Engineering Registration – The Committee discussed the challenge of civil engineering registration and sharing knowledge with members. It was agreed that FAQ’s could be a useful resource.
  2. Events and Policy - The Committee noted the need to refocus on events and policy and therefore the sub-committees need to be reinvigorated. 
  3. Event Types - The Committee discussed a range of events including on registration, social procurement and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) school programs.
