Join an Interest Group!
The 2020 Board has resolved to establish interest groups for QRRRWN members to enable them to connect, discuss and learn about key topics – together. It would include regularly connecting and meeting (online or in-person) with a view to connecting, developing and inspiring QRRRWN members in the area of interest.
We have a range of topics and industries where members have expressed an interest in establishing an interest group. Please send your ideas for interest groups to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Board will consider all requests.
Agricultural Interest Group
Established April 2020. As a first step, the Board agreed to established an interest group focusing on ‘Agriculture’. This group now meets monthly for a half hour via a virtual meeting.
The aim of the group is to connect women in Ag across the breadth of Queensland. Julie Mayne is the Board lead for the ‘Agricultural Interest Group’.
Special guests are invited to attend with the focus being on connection, sharing and support.
If you would like to be part of the Agricultural interest group please contact us at email@example.com.
