News from the Centre of Stabilisation expertise in Australia

A monthly newsletter informing you of initiatives and happenings in the stabilisation industry in Australia

Dear <<First Name>>

Welcome to AustStab's 24th newsletter. In April 2014:
  • We participated in meetings with members in NSW and Qld;
  • Council confirmed the accreditation of five new contractors in New South Wales and Queensland;
  • We delivered the Insitu stabilisation course in conjuction with CPEE in Geraldton WA;
  • Council resolved to hold AustStab membership fees at the 2012 level for a third year;
  • We continued to deliver on the pillars of the association.

We hope that you will find this newsletter informative and recommend it to your colleagues.
