Saturday the 7 October 2017, saw the NHWQ State Conference being held at the Beenleigh Events Centre, Beenleigh. NHW delegates from around Queensland converged to the event to share ideas, network and listen to insightful speakers covering a range of areas. The speakers provided both informative and practical ideas for the members to implement in their own NHW groups, in particular the use of social media and how it can not only benefit the communication process but also the recruiting of new members.
The NHWQ District and State awards were awarded for the NHWQ Liaison Officer and Member of The Year 2017, a huge congratulations to all the District winners and in particular the State winners, Sergeant Nigel Dalton (Mackay District) and Alwin Koo (Woree, NHW Coordinator, Cairns). Without the effort and commitment shown by all the winners and respective groups, NHW would not flourish and continue to grow within our communities.
