Australian Construction Industry Forum
The Society is pleased to advise that it is now a member of the Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF).
The ACIF is the meeting place for leaders of the construction industry in Australia.
ACIF facilitates and supports an active dialogue between the key players in residential and non-residential building, and engineering construction, other industry groups, and government agencies.
Members of the ACIF are the most significant Associations in the industry, spanning the entire asset creation process from feasibility through design, cost planning, construction and building and management.
Membership will allow the Society to participate in discussions regarding key issues affecting the industry and to strengthen its voice on behalf of the industry.
The Society is pleased to announce the formation of SCL International.
There is now a Society of Construction Law in over 15 countries. Each of these Societies have now come together to build cooperation and collaboration between the Societies.
SCL International has established a website (http://www.sclinternational.org). Members of the Australian Society can apply to be registered on the website by visiting http://www.sclinternational.org/user/register. Before visiting the site you should obtain the registration code. The registration code can be obtained by emailing email@example.com. Once membership has been confirmed you will receive log in details.
Each Society is able to post papers and other material on the international website. The Australian Society will begin publishing material shortly.
Access to papers from the UK Society is now available through the international website rather than through the historical arrangements between the Australian Society and the UK Society.
SCL International will oversee the biennial international conference.
SCL International is keen to be of service to memebrs of the Societies around the world.
The contact points between the Australian Society and SCL International are our Societies Chair, Basil Georgiou, and our two SCL International Liaison Officers, Phillip Greenham and Ian Bailey QC. They can be contacted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
