CCF Victoria Celebrate 75 Years of Supporting Members and the Industry:

On Friday 5 October 2018, over 150 CCF Members and guests came together for a very special black-tie event at Luminaire, in South Melbourne.

From the very early days as AERCF (1943-1993), to more recently as the Civil Contractors Federation (CCF), the night was a celebration of our rich history and the contribution made by many.

The night was split up into three 25-year sections (1943-1968, 1968-1993, 1993-2018) where a short video was played that looked at some of the key events and people from the era, and was then followed by the onstage Q&A style interviews with key industry dignitaries, CCF Life Members and former CCF Board members, who reminisced about the “good old” days on key events, activities and characters over the 75-year journey.

Another key highlight from the evening included a “time tunnel” feature on the entrance corridor that took people back in time to see the past CCF Presidents as well as images of Victoria from the early days of the Association right through to today.

It was an unforgettable success and many Members commented on the incredible memories it brought back for them on a personal as well as professional level.

See below some of the images from the night as well as the 3 retrospective videos from each era. These can also be viewed on CCF’s YouTube page
