The RTSA Western Australia Chapter holds technical presentations and site visits throughout the year. In 2014 our program theme will be ‘Meeting the future rail public transport challenge for Perth as a city of 3.5 million people’. The highlight of the year is the Annual Dinner, which is the largest annual gathering of leaders in the WA rail industry.

Our lunchtime technical presentations are typically held on the fourth Thursday of the month in the main auditorium at Engineers Australia, 712 Murray Street, West Perth. A light lunch and opportunity to network with colleagues is available from 12:00, with presentations commencing at 12:30.

We have strong links to industry and other railway professional organisations. These allow us to present relevant and top quality presentations and organise site visits to locations not accessible to the general public. We also occasionally hold joint technical presentations with kindred bodies, including the Engineers Australia WA Chapter Transport Panel.

The pinnacle of our event calendar is our annual dinner meeting. Hosted in the Grand Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency, the evening is open to all members of the rail industry and partners are warmly invited to attend as our guest speakers make the presentation of interest to all.

Our events are open to anyone who is interested, although registration is required (details provided in the event flyers). Most of our events are free (with the exception of our annual dinner meeting). If you have any suggestions for future events, or are interested in sponsoring any events, please contact the chapter committee at wa@rtsa.com.au.
