Message from the WA State Manager

2020: despite its challenges has been an incredibly productive and rewarding year for the WA Chapter. We would like to thank all members, contributors, and supporters throughout the year, without whom none of our programs would be possible.

I would also like to congratulate Sandy Anghie, Tanya Jones and Mandy Leung as return Councillors for 2021-2022, and most importantly Peter Hobbs on another term as Chapter President.

In a recap, some key activities include:

2021 will be an even more productive year:

  • We look forward to making a submission in response to the State’s Draft Medium Density Policy, including hosting a series of briefing sessions and workshops.
  • State Elections: Save the Date for a State Election Breakfast alongside AILA and PIA featuring key state election candidates on 10 February 2021, a not to be missed event!
  • WA Architecture Awards 2021: entries are now open! The next awards season will combine the best of both worlds: presentation to juries day, exhibition, site visit jury process, digital award presentation and an Afterparty at the Westin (with some new initiatives along the way). Stay tuned for more announcements coming soon.

Wishing you all a restful and rejuvenating break, and a prosperous 2021.

Beata Davey
