ForestWorks Industry Skills Council has congratulated the host city of Mt Gambier and everyone involved in putting together a hugely successful AUSTimber 2012.
ForestWorks CEO Michael Hartman said the conference meant the public was given a great opportunity to gain an insight into the high quality jobs in the forest, wood, paper and timber products industry.
“The AUSTimber conference is a terrific way to bring the industry together. It’s our chance to learn new ways of working and see the latest technology available in our industry,” Mr Hartman said.
“It’s also a fantastic opportunity for us to meet with the local community and let them know there are quality jobs and great careers in our industry.
“On Thursday, ForestWorks conference participants were able to learn about the latest science and at the expo on Friday and Saturday they could see some of the resultant technology in action.
“I wish to congratulate AUSTimber General Manager David Quill for his deft management of the event as well as the Australian Forest Contractors Association, the organisation behind AUSTimber. There was also terrific support from Forestry SA.
“I also want to extend a particularly warm thanks to the City of Mt Gambier and the District Council of Grant.
“The enthusiasm of the local community for this conference was simply outstanding and shows what a bright future this industry has.”
ForestWorks worked with the Australian Forest Contractors Association to organise the careers conference portion of AUSTimber in 2008 as well as the precision in Forestry conference this year.
“These conferences are terrific events, and on behalf of ForestWorks I look forward to working again with AFCA in 2016,” Mr Hartman said.
