December means tinsel, presents, reindeers....and the RA piper

RA’s annual lunch season is in full swing, and we've been breaking records around the country.

The season kicked off with Minister Mark Bailey, who joined us in Brisbane a few days out from the State election for our Brisbane Annual Lunch, sponsored by Transurban.

A bumper crowd of 250 industry leaders joined us for this ever-popular networking event.

Just a few days later we hosted Minister Melinda Pavey at the Aurecon-sponsored Sydney Annual. This event broke all records, with over 400 in attendance.

Main Roads WA Acting MD, Peter Woronzow, was our guest speaker in Perth. Another record was broken for this event, with 170 industry leaders turning out for the GHD-sponsored lunch.

In Adelaide, Minister Stephen Mullighan spoke to a record 190 members and guests. Thanks to Aurecon for also sponsoring this event.

And, yes - in the best traditions of the RA lunch season, the piper has been busy at all our lunches to date.

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.
