MEA Industry Forum
Meetings and Events Australia recently undertook a review of the format and focus of the Special Interest Groups (SIGS) platform and the value this has been delivering in recent years.
PSome SIGS were more active in some states than others, some only met once a year at the Conference and members have commented about the mixed value across the board.
Whilst MEA supports and encourages the active SIGS to continue their activities, MEA believes by changing the focus and purpose of the SIGS platform at the Conference, we could derive more value for you as a member as well as the association. Under the new platform named MEA INDUSTRY FORUM – the focus will be on key issues that need broader engagement to help inform and then feed back into MEA. MEA would then take all the issues to the relevant bodies to help the industry drive the necessary changes. By doing this we believe that we can drive great change and better engagement to get the results and value our industry needs.
The unique nature of MEA is that we are representative of all the sectors within the industry so rather than the SIGs being specific to each sector, we broaden the discussion to the common issues across the sectors. This will allow for discussion, collaboration and problem solving within our industry.
As a result, on the Sunday at the MEA National Conference, you can join a discussion focused on an issue that you have a genuine interest in and contribute to the discussion and learn from others. The new name to replace the collective “Special Interest Groups” will be MEA Industry Forum (MEA IF)

Note: Each Forum will be Chaired by a MEA National Board Member and co-chaired by a MEA State or Territory Branch President
