WA Determinative Forum
16 August 2017
Wednesday, 16 August
Join Ian Munns and Daniel Kearney, as they explain the continuing role of the Construction Contracts Act within the new Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety. The speakers will consider the changes to the Act that have been in force for the last seven months and discuss what changes might lie ahead. They will also consider the educational initiatives that are being undertaken to create greater awareness and use of the Act amongst smaller players within the construction industry.
You are invited to submit your queries on the future operation of the Act to Resolution Institute (addressed to Helen Goddard) by 7 August 2017 so the speakers can address these in their informal discussions with the group.
Resolution Institute thanks Squire Patton Boggs who are generously hosting this event.
