Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions in Victoria, the 2021 Management Forum and AGM originally to be held in Bendigo was held as an on-line webinar event. 

Date: 21st September 2021
Time: 9.30 AM START (AGM start 4.30pm)

The Management Forum had a special focus on Zero Emission Buses (ZEB’s). The event was an ideal opportunity for members to learn about ZEB’s: what they are, how they work, what options will be available to operators when they do their bus replacements come 2025, and what the ramifications are of their deployment into the fleet, such as maintenance, skills and scheduling. The Forum also featured presentations on accident investigations and COVID Vaccinations in the Workplace as these were pertinent industry issues.
