World Plumbing Day

One of the most important days of the year, World Plumbing Day is celebrated on 11 March every year, every where

In 2018, MPAQ celebrated World Plumbing Day with a sit-down breakfast with special guest speakers, networking opportunities and a bit of industry fun on Friday 9 March!

Initiated by the World Plumbing Council, World Plumbing Day is a day to celebrate the important role plumbing plays in the health and safety of modern society.

Our World Plumbing Day Breakfast celebrations were a huge success, and we would like to thank everyone who attended—it was by far our biggest and best World Plumbing Day yet! 

David Keys was appointed as Queensland's new Plumbing Ambassador for 2018 and Sarah Condie was appointed as MPAQ's new Apprentice Plumbing Ambassador at the World Plumbing Day celebration. The purpose of the plumbing and apprentice plumbing ambassadorships is to promote the trade across Queensland and encourage future generations to consider it as a future career path. The ambassadors will play an important role with MPAQ throughout 2018.

A special thanks to Carlie Low, our previous female plumbing ambassador, for all her efforts in 2017 and for passing this important role over to David and Sarah. 

A special thanks also to the Hon. Mick de Brenni MP, Minister for Housing and Public Works who spoke about the importance of plumbing for the health and safety of our community. The Hon. Michael Hart MP, Shadow Minister for Housing and Public Works, Shadow Minister for Energy and Shadow Minister for Innovation and Digital Technology also attended this special event. 

Our guest speaker at the event was Peter Davidson. Peter is a Critical Care Paramedic that was aboard the first rescue helicopter to reach survivors in the ill fated 1998 Sydney to Hobart yacht race decimated by a hurricane where 6 sailors lost their lives. Peter shared the events, insights and leadership challenges that he and his crew faced on this day.

The World Plumbing Day industry breakfast also saw the launch of the 2018 Events Charity partnership with Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA). PCFA is dedicated to reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners and families, recognising the diversity of the Australian community. MPAQ will be collecting donations at all 2018 events for PCFA! A massive thank you to all attendees who bought raffle tickets and donated on the day. Over $2,200 was raised, all of which will be donated to Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia!
