At a special meeting of National Congress on 27 and 28 July 2010, Engineers Australia’s National Congress made a landmark decision to approve a draft new Code of Ethics and Guidelines on Professional Conduct. This followed an extensive review process over the last two years and substantial input from members and external experts.

Our new Code of Ethics has the following improvements:
•    a simpler structure and a style more accessible to and easily understood by members, students, consumers and external stakeholders;
•    better links to the demonstration of ethics competencies in chartered/registration assessments;
•    better reflects contemporary engineering practice applicable to collective professional conduct, as well as to individual ethical decision-making; and which
•    provides a more effective basis for disciplinary action.

With the new Code of Ethics now fully in effect this event will be a chance for you to discuss and find out first hand the effects of this new Code of Ethics on Engineers Australia and the community.
The event will be hosted by 2011 Division President Elect Dr David Cruickshanks-Boyd FIEAust EngExec, who was a member of the steering committee for the revised Code of Ethics.

WaterAid’s Pakistan Emergency Fund
Please help people affected by Pakistan’s worst flooding in 80 years.  WaterAid internationally urgently needs to raise $220,000 toward our initial relief effort in Pakistan. WaterAid in Australia is aiming to contribute $50,000 to this target. By supporting this emergency appeal, your gift could help save lives and give thousands of vulnerable people in Pakistan the support they urgently need to survive.

We will be collecting a gold coin donation at this event. Each dollar raised by Engineers Australia at this event will be matched through the generosity of Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB).
