With our industry expanding rapidly and many members flat out just doing their jobs, it’s a great credit to them that they still find the time and commitment to attend industry networking, educational and social functions.

For pipeliners, attending meetings, social functions and conferences is an important part of their business, helping our members to stay in touch, raise issues of importance, meet colleagues and other people in the industry, find solutions to problems and share ideas. 

The networking and educational events conducted by APGA have proven to provide the best opportunities for our members to exchange information and learn about new developments and, with the APGA secretariat located in the East,  the WA Chapter, provides strong and enduring back-up for events in the West.

Each year the APGA WA Chapter’s local and dedicated committee helps the secretariat to deliver a uniquely WA series of networking and education events, including industry technical evenings and the combined APGA/Young Pipeliners’ Forum Quiz Night.

With the West’s onshore and offshore infrastructure, different range of businesses invested in the industry and large number of interstate and international workers, the APGA WA Chapter is an important forum for members to fully participate in our Association.

APGA WA Chapter events annually attract hundreds of attendees, with the numbers rising steadily. These events also attract the generous support of around 35 sponsors.

The WA Chapter welcomes feedback and ideas from WA members on ways the Committee can further improve the education and networking it offers.
