Branch Committee Activities
The Branch offers regular seminars and training courses on range of air quality issues.
The areas covered may be of specific relevance to WA (eg, air quality management in the Kwinana industrial area) or be of national and international interest (eg, NEPM implementation, studies of urban pollution and health).
Presenters include representatives of State Government authorities and local industry, and environmental consultants. Interstate or international air pollution experts also participate in Branch events.
Branch Committee meetings are held every two months and provide a forum for the discussion of emerging air quality issues. They also allow CASANZ members from regulatory authorities, industry and the community to meet and discuss issues in an informal environment.
The Training Activities Executive (TAE) oversees the provision of air quality related training courses throughout Australia and New Zealand. Comprised of a Chair and a representative from each Branch Committee, it plans and co-ordinates the schedule of courses on request or rotationally through interested Branches. The Western Australia Branch hosts training courses in Perth or, when there is sufficient interest, in regional centres. These include both introductory and advanced courses covering general air quality, ambient and emissions measurement, meteorology and modelling, pollution control and more. A forward schedule and course descriptions are provided on the training pages.
