CPEE Support of Standards Australia is Helping Sustain the Pavement Industry

One of the ways that CPEE helps sustain the pavements industry is through in-kind support of Standards Australia, the leading independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit standards organisation in Australia.

CPEE Executive Manager Professional Development, Dr Kym Neaylon holds the volunteer role of Independent Chair for the Standards Australia Committee CH-025 ‘Bitumen and Related Products (for Roadmaking)’, a position he held long before joining CPEE. The role of Independent Chair requires maintaining the respect of the bitumen producers, manufacturers, contactors, and state government users, who, at times, have competing agendas.

CPEE Strives to Maintain Links with Government

CPEE was pleased to meet with Paul Hamer, Member for Box Hill in the Victorian State Parliament, to discuss our role as a not-for-profit and accredited provider of higher education and short courses servicing the road and pavement sector.

While the discussion focused on continuity and changes in the engineering and education sectors, we were also pleased to learn about Paul’s considerable engineering experience - he holds a Master of Engineering and worked in a variety of government and private roles prior to entering parliament.

CPEE strives to maintain strong links with government, industry, state road authorities, research bodies and consulting engineers throughout Australia, and we appreciate Paul taking time to meet with us.
