North West Seminar 2017

21st Annual North West Seminar Broome   The 2017 North West Seminar was conducted at the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre on the 18th – 19th of May.  Another milestone reached in Maintaining the Network in the regions with the 21st annual event attracting 45 delegates and exhibitors from as far away as Warburton on the edge of Western Australian and South Australian border.  Well done to Steve (I don’t get to dance much in Warburton) Girschik for making the massive trek to attend. The event was also very well supported by our trade partners with Nick Bohm from Prominent making the long trek from NSW and George Lech from Ixom doing the hard yards to get to sunny Broome for a few days.  Along with Rod from Trisley’s, Ed from Sigma, Greg from Chadson’s, Chris from MTP, Kim from CAS and Sue from AUSTSWIM who also attended meant there was a great deal of knowledge in the room.  The Board and members of LIWA Aquatics are grateful for this support.  But it is the delegates who make this event and this year it was wonderful to see so many in attendance enjoying the company and great vibe that is the essence of a North West Seminar.
