The annual convention of members is held towards the end of each year and is normally hosted by a member utility. The convention features a sports day, gala dinner, mayoral cocktail event, commercial exhibition, and tours for spouses. Attendance is normally in the order of six hundred people. Papers presented at the convention are published in the form of a proceedings book.
The operating committees of the association meet three times a year over two days, normally hosted by a member utility, which can be in any part of the country. Members pay for their own travel and accommodation to attend meetings. The operating committees consists of utility representatives but also representatives from many stakeholders in the industry.
Branch meetings are ideally held four times a year, often over two days, and again members pay for their own travel and accommodation. Catering and venues are often sponsored by our affiliates.
Meetings are the backbone of an industry association, and the AMEU ensures that its meetings are always industry relevant and developmental for participants.
