Message from the Council 
To the Fellows of Roads Australia,

The 2017 year for the Fellowship has kicked off with a number of events across Australia, with a significant program of activity planned for the year ahead. It was great to get an opportunity to spend some time in Perth with Marion Fulker (CEO of Committee for Perth) who was our key note speaker at our Leadership Lunch in April and we have continued with our young professionals event held in Melbourne with over 100 attendees.  We are proud to receive the support of Arup in engaging with the next generation of transport professionals and we look forward to a number of similar events to be held throughout the year.

The Fellowship Council has been meeting regularly to continue to advance the Fellowship program for our current and past Fellows. The Council and program sponsor John Holland are looking forward to spending some time with the 2017 Fellows at the mid year workshop in May. We have revamped our program to further support the development of leadership skills with a range of facilitators and speakers engaged for the two day session.

The Policy Chapters are rapidly growing, driving thought leadership for the transport sector in Australia. As such there are a number of opportunities for Fellows to become heavily engaged in shaping the policy thinking for the future and we hope to see you more involved. 

Lastly, we were lucky enough to attend the Roads Australia 5-yearly strategic Board Workshop in February. The workshop highlighted two key shifts - toward the importance of the entire customer journey and the increasingly integrated nature of the various modes of transport. In addition, the Board recognised the Fellowship Chapter as a core element of the future of Roads Australia.

Young Professional Events  
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.

The next Young Professionals Event will be held in Sydney on Thursday 22 June with Uber’s Head of Operations, Mike Abbott. Invites will be sent shortly – please contact Hannah to register your interest.
