To celebrate the completion of the 2004 Geotechnical Design Project at the University of Newcastle, the Newcastle Chapter of the Australian Geomechanics Society invited its members to join the 4th year design students to a recovery function on 29 October 2004 (just after they submitted their major assignment work). It proved to be an excellent opportunity for our imminent graduates to meet members of the local geotechnical profession and discuss potential career opportunities. A number of students secured employment following the function. The Chapter was also fortunate to sign up additional student members as a result of the function.
Engineers Australia members participating in AGS technical sessions can record attendance on their personal CPD logs. Members should refer to Engineers Australia CPD policy for details on CPD types, requirements and auditing guidelines.
