What a great year 2019 has been and 2020 set to be even bigger with Melbourne hosting the 17th Australasian Tunnelling Conference 29 November- 02 December.

The National Executive would like to formally acknowledge the contribution of outgoing committee members, President Ed Taylor and Treasure Geoff Archer. Both Ed and Geoff have a long involvement with the ATS and it is in part through their leadership and hard work that we continue to see the ATS evolve. All members wish you all the very best for 2020 and beyond.

Following the recent Executive committee held in November, we would like to welcome the following committee members to their new roles:

  • President Harry Asche; and
  • Vice President Richard Buckingham;

Oh behalf of the ATS Executive committee we wish you and your families a happy and safe holiday season.
