AMPLA is an important organisation for those working as lawyers in the resources and energy sectors. It provides the platform for knowledge sharing and education on the current issues affecting our practices and, just as importantly, fosters strong collegiate links between legal professionals. I hope you are able to take advantage of all that AMPLA is able to offer you, both at the Branch level in your local State or Territory or at the National level with our highly regarded National Conference. I especially wish to encourage new and younger members to participate in some way. AMPLA is a member run organisation and the networking and learning benefits it offers are, in my view, hard to match in any other professional organisation.
I look forward to welcoming you to my home city, Sydney, for the 2014 Conference in October 2014.
