Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

Welcome to Clearwater's latest update.

Masterclass Series - Early Bird extension
Good news: we have extended our Masterclass Series early bird offer to February 2nd! FOUR classes for the price of THREE - only $885. Don't miss out - places are limited.

These interactive and locally relevant masterclasses will explore best practice in Integrated Water Management (IWM) and practical skills to build support and drive successful projects for your region. Each class will be delivered in Traralgon, Benalla, Melbourne CBD, Horsham, and Ballarat from February to June.

Water Drinks
Water Drinks on 12 February will be an excellent opportunity to welcome in 2018 in the picturesque surrounds of South Wharf. The theme for this event will be engaging the community with Integrated Water Management. Guest speaker Christy Arnott, from ASDF research, will discuss community consultation and communication approaches that can assist organisations in IWM planning.

We strongly encourage local government staff to attend and network with others on this topic.  Our February Water Drinks are always popular so make sure you register ASAP (and take note of the RSVP date!).

New Resources
Among our helpful new resources, we've released two new videos from our five part series, Plan to Collaborate, delivered in partnership with Collabforge. The videos, How do you bring people together? and How do I get people co-creating?, explore the considerations of identifying who should be involved in your collaboration, how to facilitate trust of one another, and how to plan the outcomes you will achieve together.
