PWI 2023 Annual Convention


“Back to Basics 2.0”



The Hon Jenny Aitchison MP
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads

We’re excited to announce that the Hon Jenny Aitchison, MP, Minister for Regional Transport and Roads will be the keynote for the 2023 Annual Convention.

The Hon. Jenny Aitchison was appointed Minister for Regional Transport and Roads in April 2023 in the Minns Labor Government. She grew up in Canberra and has lived in regional NSW for over 25 years. She is a strong advocate for the transport sector, having served on State and Federal committees and presented on issues of resilience, environment, critical incident and safety management, disability access, increasing patronage, tourism and economic development, and the transition to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator.

We look forward to Minister Aitchison opening our event!

The Permanent Way Institution NSW is taking the 2023 Annual Convention to Orange, so we can go “Back to Basics 2.0”.

The full day conference for PWI members only features innovative papers, a gourmet two-course seated lunch, and an exciting panel.
