What the QLD Committee does

The QLD Committee gives members the opportunity to develop strategies to tackle local issues as well as contribute to the national agenda. Committee participants are often called upon to represent Consult Australia in local engagement activities (including meetings with government agencies etc). The QLD Committee meets monthly and requires engaged individuals.

Latest 'top 3 takeaways'

The 'top 3 takeaways' summarise key issues discussed at the last meeting. These are to help the broader membership understand the activities of the QLD Committee.

  1. CA-QMCA 'Building Bridges' initiative. The Committee discussed the launch of the initiative and the positive engagement between consultants and contractors on this, all driving for a better industry culture.
  2. Increased information sharing. The Committee discussed developing a slide deck, of Consult Australia policy updates and opportunities for member involvement, for information sharing.
  3. Special Guest - Damian Gould, CEO of Building Queensland. The Committee were pleased to welcome Damian Gould to the meeting to provide a vision on how consultants and Building Queensland can work closely together.
