WA Division - Celebration Sundowner

Mon 03, Nov 2014 4.30pm

Please join in celebrating the achievements of two of our long-standing members.

Dr James Fisher FAIA was awarded a Fellowship of the Institute in May 2014. His talk is entitled "Knowing enough to be dangerous... in many areas". James will talk about being a generalist, thanking his many mentors and colleagues, talking about a career so far that has been one of applied research and teaching, most often integrating and trying to build on knowledge created by others.

Mr Mick Poole AM FAIA became a Member of the General Division of the Order of Australia in the 2014 New Year’s Honours List. His talk is entitled “Agricultural Innovation- a Three Legged Stool". Mick will look at a few key local innovations in WA agriculture over the last 50 or so years that he has had first-hand knowledge of, and for the last 10 minutes or so he might put the audience to work on something for the future based on what he has said.

These presentations will be followed by refreshments and snacks at 6.00 pm

NSW Farming Futures Conference

Mon 01, Sep 2014

The Farming Futures Conference and Career Fair held at the University of New England (UNE) in July 2014, brought together leading agricultural science and agribusiness associations for a day to meet graduates studying in the area and to discuss the challenges that concern the future of our farming industry.

NSW AIA was one of 27 stall-holders at the Farming Futures event this year, up from 12 stalls since its conception 3 years ago. New graduates were very interested in the broad area that Ag Institute covers, as the general atmosphere of the event was to break away from the existing silos, to develop networks across sectors and collaborate to overcoming the issues faced in this dynamic industry.

NSW AIA was successful in gaining 37 new members, with existing members coming to meet new graduates and discuss their areas of expertise. A take home message for the AIA was to allow the clusters of members (associated by locality) to connect and organise their own small networks, which would be of the greatest value for any AIA member young and old.
