I have been overwhelmed by the number of events and commemorations that are being organised by mostly volunteers in our region, and what a wonderful job these community members do.  Well done, we certainly have strong communities in our beautiful region.

 

I thank Council for approving my request to attend the 122nd Local Government Association of Queensland’s Annual Conference.  I found the conference to be informative and very professionally presented.  I also enjoy the opportunity to network with many other Councillors on a state-wide basis.
