Join VMBSG Women’s Network for a legal workshop by Russell Kennedy Lawyers addressing building regulatory topics.

VMBSG Women’s Network: Women in Leadership Roles in the Building Regulatory Industry

On 23 October 2023, the VMBSG Women’s Network held a planning session during which members provided feedback as to the types of events they would like the network to host. One of the suggestions was an event in which women in leadership roles in the building regulatory industry share their experiences and stories.

The VMBSG Women’s Network Committee invite you to attend the first networking session on 15 February 2024 regarding women in leadership roles within the building regulatory industry.

The event will be held from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm at the City of Melbourne (Town Hall Commons, 120 Swanston Street, Melbourne) with networking and light refreshments from 2:30 pm prior to the commencement of the event.

The following women in leadership roles will share their stories during the event:

  • Anna Cronin, the CEO of the Victorian Building Authority;
  • Jo Van Loon, the Deputy State Building Surveyor;
  • Leanne Wilson, the Municipal Building Surveyor of Maroondah City Council;
  • Leanne Platt, Deputy Municipal Building Surveyor of Casey City Council; and
  • Anita Dorfer-Mehanic, Deputy Municipal Building Surveyor of Melbourne City Council.

Attendance at the networking session is free of charge however registration is essential.

The VMBSG Women’s Network invites all members, non-members, technical and administrative staff of Local Government and affiliated professions to attend our networking sessions.  We welcome our male and gender-diverse colleagues to join us and ask that you forward this invitation to any colleagues who may be interested in attending.

This event is made possible with thanks to RK Lawyers and Melbourne City Council.
