A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT

Grateful to My Weekly Preview for the opportunity to communicate regularly in their popular weekly magazine. My column in the current edition edition talks about our recent walk around the Sippy Downs Town Centre along with Councillor Christian Dickson and Council town planning and economic development staff, Brent Mickelberg Member for Buderim and Andrew Wallace, Federal Member for Fisher.

We provided some feedback to Council that more hospitality and things to do were required to make the town centre a place to stay and play rather than just grab & go. We are also keen to see the development of a short-term accommodation option in the precinct to capitalise on visitation to USC.  The ‘university town’ vision for Sippy Downs is coming out of the ground now in leaps and bounds and it’s exciting to see.

I’ve just had the opportunity to sit down with Stephen Tait, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Queensland. We discussed our respective agendas, feedback from business, collaboration and cooperation opportunities.  Such conversations are always valuable and encourage broad and deep thinking to build the voice of business in Queensland.

Finally, please everyone respond to your membership renewal invitation coming through your email.  We are all stronger together. 2021 is an important year to not just recover from the disruption of 2020 but to take new opportunities and positive influences forward.
