I am delighted to invite you to our 2013 National Conference, Exhibition and Awards. This year, the conference will be in Canberra at the recently refurbished Rydges Lakeside, November 14-16. Delegates will have the opportunity to join in the celebrations of the centenary of our nation’s capital.
Our National Conference provides the opportunity for Master Builders from all around Australia to come together to learn more about the industry and where it is heading. This is particularly relevant in the context of what a new federal government means for our industry. The Building Australia theme focuses on leadership and assisting members in continuing to grow their business whilst developing and maintaining strong leadership attributes within their business ethos.
Our partners and social programs allow time for fun and relaxation, culminating on Saturday night with the national awards presentation dinner which will acknowledge excellence in the building and construction industry. I look forward to seeing you in Canberra.
Peter Kennedy, National President.
