The Electric Energy Society of Australia is proud to present a number of events which include conferences, seminars and technical visits. They are all aimed at providing ongoing professional development to members and meetings attract expert speakers from Australia and overseas. An important benefit of meetings is the personal interaction members have with other members and with experts in the industry. To this end meetings are run in a personal and friendly format so that all present have the opportunity to be personally involved. Trade exhibitions at conferences attract industry experts both from Australia and overseas, and ample time is provided to discuss particular applications and new technologies in depth. These are rare opportunities to learn which do not fit in to the normal busy working week.
