EHA : Annual Review and Yearbook 2008
Branch Presidents’ Reports Queensland Branch (continued) Regional Group Report The Northern Group held two conferences, Townsville November 2007 and Atherton June 2008, both of which were well attended by members, sponsors and guests. The November conference hosted by Townsville City Council was a special opportunity for the Group to say farewell and happy retirement to Paddy Flynn who made a large contribution to the Northern Group in the 70s and 80s and spent almost his entire career working for Mackay City Council in its various incarnations. Bob McAuliffe of MacDonald Johnston Engineering, a long time sponsor of the Northern Group and EHA was also farewelled and awarded honorary membership of EHA. Bob’s insightful views were always welcomed by members and guests attending various Northern Group conferences. The June conference hosted by the newly-amalgamated Tablelands Regional Council at Atherton/Tolga included a workshop to discuss issues involved with Council amalgamations. Useful perspectives were given by members, sponsors, guests and the deputy mayor of the Tablelands Regional Council. Alex Skubij of Cairns Regional Council hosted a workshop based on the principles of business excellence covering methods and incentives to obtain and retain the services of Environmental Health Officers. The Northern Group members thank all sponsors for their attendance and valued contribution to the success of each conference, in particular, Townsville City Council (November), Tablelands Regional Council (June), MacDonald Johnston Engineering, Pacific Biologics, Golder Associates, Woolworths, and Servesafe. Rob Smith and I thank all members, sponsors and guests who attended, presented and organised, to deliver very successful conferences. Jim masselos mAIEH Northern Group Chair 30 EHA ANNUAL REPORT 2008
