Feel the buzz in Narrandera

Do you like helping the natural environment? Do you like being outdoors? Do you like agriculture? Naturally! Then a school-based NSW beekeeping traineeship should be perfect for you. Come along to a showcase day at King Bee Honey, 36 Paynters Siding Road, Narrandera, NSW on Wednesday, 25 September 2019. Your questions will be answered. There will be hands-on workshops — beekeeping demonstrations from world class beekeepers, find the queen bee, learn about the importance of beekeeping to the natural environment and more. Plus, a FREE lunch, but you MUST book, you can’t just show up.

Hello Tony Palladino

NSW ITABs welcomes Tony Palladino as the new Executive Officer of the NSW Utilities & Electrotechnology ITAB. It's great to have you on board, Tony. We also bid a fond farewell to Norm Cahill, the outgoing and long-serving EO of U&E. Norm is off to do — perhaps not better — but probably more fun things. We know he'll miss the acronyms.
