Welcome to the Riverina Regional Group

The Riverina Regional Group of Engineers Australia (EAR) was reformed in 2009 after being inactive for a number of years. While the members of the Committee are primarily based in Wagga Wagga, the Group covers an area stretching from the Victorian border in the south to West Wyalong/Young in the north, and east to the Snowy Mountains. With the Murrumbidgee Group, which was based in Griffith, currently being inactive, EAR includes those members in its distribution, and has a Griffith based member on the Committee.

The Committee meets monthly to organise a series of site visits and technical presentations for members. While the Technical Presentations are primarily held in Wagga or Griffith, site visits can be anywhere within the area covered by the Group. In addition to the above activities, the Group is actively involved in promoting the Engineering Profession to High School students across the Riverina. In 2012, EAR became the only Regional Group west of the Blue Mountains to organise a Discover Engineering Day for High School students. This proved to be extremely popular with students, and, by its second year the day attracted almost 120 students from schools across the Riverina.

In addition EAR participates in the “Build-a-Bridge....and get over it” programme organised by the Riverina Eastern Regional Organisation of Councils, Questacon presentations, and Robocup programmes.

The group’s Annual General Meeting is held in November each year and is followed by a dinner and Guest Speaker.

Any members with ideas for site visits, technical presentations, guest speakers, or interested in serving on the Committee, is asked to contact either the Chair or Secretary.
