What's happening in 2019?
A new name
The Association will launch its new name - Waste Management & Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) on 1 January 2019 (click here to read more). As part of this evolution, WMAA will be embarking on a rebranding journey, including a new and improved website which will incorporate so much more, including a suite of educational fact sheets for community. Watch this space.
WMAA is launching a new working group, the Resource Recovery and Market Development Working Group. Expressions of Interest are still open. Click here to join your State working group and/or here and here to nominate a Chair and Vice Chair for the group.
Training and development
In January, WMAA will commence the recruitment process for a Training and Development Manager who will develop an Accreditation program previously resolved by the Board to progress. The program will seek to develop and recognise the professional skills required in our sector.
The WMAA Constitution
As WMAA evolves, there is a need to update our Constitution to better reflect the Association's membership and activities. Work is underway to refresh this important document, which will be published for consultation in mid-January.
