New YPA Committee Chair

Posted on Friday 19 February, 2021

The NZIOB wishes to thank Farran Inglis for his commitment and drive during his 2020 tenure as Chair of the Institute’s Young Professional Advisor (YPA) committee, and we are pleased to announce that Adam Baxter has been appointed as the new Chair for 2021. Adam was a member of the NZIOB YPA and Southern Region Committees in 2020, so is well versed in what the NZIOB is trying to achieve within the construction industry.

YPA Committee Regional vacancies

Posted on Friday 19 February, 2021

Due to a desire to increase the diversity of the existing Young Professional Advisor (YPA) Committee, combined with the requirement to fill YPA vacancies that have occurred due to some 2020 YPAs no longer being eligible (age wise) to continue in 2021, there are three regional YPA spots to fill. Expressions of Interests (EOIs) are being sought for the three regional YPA roles.

NZIOB Carters Central Region Golf Day

Posted on Friday 19 February, 2021

The sold-out NZIOB Carters Central Region Golf Day was held in Lower Hutt on Friday 13 February. After a heavy rain shower in the morning, the sun came out, creating perfect conditions for a round of golf, at an event in which the full cross-section of the supply-chain was represented. Our hole sponsors came to the party, hosting a variety of competitions and refreshments around the course, and the Fireshield drinks carts kept the cold drinks flowing.

NZIOB Chief Executive, Malcolm Fleming, has written a piece for ArchiPro’s Commercial Edit magazine, outlining his picks of the COVID-19 lockdown outcomes that will likely stick for the construction sector.
