The Regional Groups throughout Queensland perform an important function in Engineers Australia's strategic role to provide state-wide advocacy, support and professional development opportunities for our members.
The Townsville Regional Group is one of the most energetic and proactive committees, offering a comprehensive calendar of events and programs for local engineers including professional development opportunities, networking and social activities plus raising awareness of Engineering as a career. These opportunities and activities aim to be relevant, interesting, thought provoking and inexpensive for Regional Engineers across all disciplines of engineering.
Each year the Townsville Regional Group plans to hold:
- Four professional development seminars,
- A number of networking events,
- Two construction site visits,
- The Annual EA Golf Day, and
- Engagement opportunities with James Cook University and local schools
For anyone interested in being involved with this progressive Townsville Regional Group, it meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
