After eight years as the Independent Chairman of CPEE, David Anderson decided to step down at the AGM last November stating his belief that "it is in the best interests of CPEE to have a new Chairman who will no doubt bring new ideas and a new approach to leading CPEE in the future".

David as part of his final Chairman's Report took the opportunity to note:

Strategic Planning and Governance: In order to consolidate all of the change activity being undertaken, or planned to be undertaken by CPEE, the Council decided to update and extend the CPEE strategic plan. This was achieved mid-2015, following a great deal of input by a special committee appointed by the Council, by the Academic Board, by Council members themselves and by CPEE staff. We now have a robust plan that will guide all of CPEE's activities for the next 3 years.

This was acheived mid-2015, following a great deal of input including planning workshops led by Professor Nita Temmerman, a special committee appointed by the Council, by the Academic Board, by Council members themselves and CPEE staff.

Review of Masters of Pavement Technology Program: Established in the latter part of the year was a formal review of CPEE's Master of Pavement Technology Course. This was being undertaken by a formal Review Panel of internal and external experts, led by Professor Arun Kumar, Emeritus Professor, RMIT University, Melbourne and Professor in Infrastructure Engineering, QUT, Brisbane.
