AHA responds to changing times

AHA Services - 06 April, 2020

AHA Member Information

There’s no hiding the fact that it has been an incredibly difficult few weeks for AHA, our members, and the hydrometric monitoring industry as a whole.
AHA is committed to supporting its members throughout Australia, and we are more committed than ever to supporting you and your team throughout this challenging era.
Amid the chaos, AHA has been working hard to introduce new ways in which we can support our members and partners.
AHA has quickly adapted to the new economic climate by planning and developing a range of flexible, digitally-focused events, online resources and virtual engagement opportunitiesfor members to enhance industry knowledge and business skills while working remotely. 

As a first step, AHA arranged with the NZ Hydrological Society to record its Technical Workshop in Tauganga last month and will be publishing the first session for access by financial members this week.

We are all like-minded individuals who face similar challenges, and our strength as an association is founded on our ability to work collaboratively. We strongly encourage you to participate and support each other through AHA groups on Facebook and LinkedIn.


How COVID-19 has impacted AHA’s operations

AHA’s operations have not been immune to the impact of COVID-19. We, like any other association must be run as a ‘business’ in order to conserve member funds and maintain our viability as a leading member association.


Reluctantly we have been forced to postpone Hydrographers Week to mid 2021

Business as usual

New training is still available as shown on our website.
You can apply now for traning.

For Diploma students, at AHA’s request the Commonwealth agency responsible has extended the deadline to complete Diploma NWP50715 until 20 June 2021.

The autumn edition of the AHA Journal Australasian Hydrographer is in preparation and will be available in the next few weeks.

Partners and kindred organisation events: AHA will continue to list and market your webinars and digital events on request.

New initiatives

NZHS Technical Workshop 2020: AHA will launch recordings of the March 2020 workshop to its financial members over the next few weeks.

AHA webinar series: We invite members, partners and affiliates to register to deliver a 15 minute presentation.
Some ideas:

  • Describe be a current project, recent initiative, teaching a new technique.
  • Share how your organisation is responding to COVID-19 and evolving WH&S strategies
  • Partners and affiliates are invited to provide information sessions about their products and services, online training, product promotions
