New Directors Introduction

Thursday 11 November 2021

VicWater have developed a short introductory seminar specifically designed for new non-executive directors in the water and catchments sector.

The event will include two one-hour sessions providing high level, key introductory information from VicWater, DELWP and Vic Catchments with time allocated at the end of each session for Q&A. The event will explore what effective industry collaboration looks like in the water sector, allowing participants to hear firsthand accounts from current and former directors and guide participants on how to find key information and resources that will likely be drawn on throughout their directorship.

This invitation-only event is specifically designed for new Directors to the water and catchments sector, complementing their induction, and providing useful context to the sector as they commence their terms.
