Brisbane Association for Rates Equity

since resigned as Secretary to pursue a political career.

serving as Executive Officer for six months during transition of the board.
Property Rights Australia:
I have participated in rallies in Canberra which culminated in the Senate
Enquiry into Native Vegetation Control Legislation and Greenhouse Gas
Abatement; an enquiry which could be useful to impacting our Queensland
legislation on Vegetation control. I have attended two AGMs to become
familiar with issues in rural Queensland
