The Western Australian Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists has nearly three hundred members, many of whom work in the mining industry. It is supported by a committee of 17 hydrogeologists; their positions and contact details are listed below.
The WA Chapter has a very active technical programme. In 2012 we hosted 10 technical presentations, and an annual seminar which attracted about 170 delegates. We also had very good attendance at our Annual General Meeting, student presentations and dinner evening. The WA committee has arranged a social evening in recent years which appears to becoming more popular each year. The next few events are shown below; the complete schedule of events for the year is also available. If you’d like to receive announcements by email, please let us know at email@example.com or click on the button below.
Of significant note, Perth has been selected to host the 40th Annual Congress of the IAH this year in September 2013, themed Solving the Groundwater Challenges of the 21st Century. Many of our members are actively involved in organising this international congress either directly on the steering committee or indirectly on sub-committees.
