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 list of current QLD Committee participants is available on our roundtables, committees & forums page.

To help the broader membership understand the activities of the QLD Committee, the three key issues discussed last meeting were:

  1. FutureNet – The QLD Committee is looking forward to supporting FutureNet throughout the year.
  2. Planning – The QLD Committee confirmed its 2023 action plan which includes targeted engagement across Government.
  3. Engagement – The QLD Committee noted the meeting with Directors-General in December 2022 and identified issues, opportunities and actions across areas of productivity, people, pipeline, procurement, resources sector and digital.


What the FutureNet Brisbane Committee does

The FutureNet Brisbane Committee gives young professionals the opportunity to design and run engaging social and educational events that allow their peers to develop valuable networks. The Committee is open to members and non-members. The FutureNet Brisbane Committee Chair also participates in the QLD Committee. The FutureNet Brisbane Committee meets monthly and requires engaged individuals willing to create and deliver engaging events.
