Young Professionals enjoy opportunity to network at Melbourne event

Above: A full-house for our Melbourne YP event.

RA's latest Young Professionals event, held in Melbourne this month, was another full-house.

Sponsored by Arup, the after-work drinks brought together well over 100 of the industry's up and comers to mix shoulders and hear from some industry mentors.

The Young Professionals program will continue to roll-out with similar events in other capital cities throughout 2017. The popularity of the program underlines the opportunity to give our next generation of industry leaders their own networking platform to share experiences and provide mutual support and encouragement.

Delivering for Australia's most important asset

As the peak body of road industry stakeholders, Roads Australia provides a national forum for debate and discussion on how we can best manage, fund, maintain and renew this vital economic asset for the benefit of all Australians.

Membership of Roads Australia is your entree to the most powerful networking experience in the Australian transport and infrastructure sectors. As we like to say, the top people come because the top people come.

Roads Australia has a unique approach to policy. We work from inside the tent, providing regular opportunities for our public and private sector members to come together in our Policy Chapters to drive practical policy outcomes. It's a formula for influencing policy like no other, and it works.
