Craig Carlyle, MESNZ column
Secretary Maintenance Engineering Society New Zealand
The Maintenance Engineering Society of New Zealand’s (MESNZ) role of supporting maintenance engineers nationally affords a lofty view of the evolution of manufacturing across the country and the role of maintenance engineers in constantly developing and refining how to provide effective plant reliability in the real world.
A keen theme running through the society’s veins is the need to match 2014 production capability with 2014 maintenance management, or in good belts and braces terms, “Lifting the Game”.
Conferences are the ideal forum for inspiring engineers wanting to lift their game, showcasing the latest solutions, sharing experiences and consolidating collective thoughts or direction.
The society’s annual SKF National Maintenance Engineering Conference has developed an environment that helps engineers gain information and inspiration through a distinct programme of presentations, exhibition and networking. Organised by industry practitioners who understand trades based engineers, the conference recognises that maintenance engineers are solution providers by nature, and love nothing more than tapping into potential solutions for future problems.
The conference is presented by the Maintenance Engineering Society of New Zealand (MESNZ), a technical interest group of IPENZ. Representing maintenance engineers nationally, the society is a strong advocate of removing cost barriers to participation.
Tickets for the November 2014 Hamilton event are $ 680+GST per person with discount opportunities down to $440+GST per person, easily the cheapest rate for any twoday plus event in New Zealand.
