President’s update: Past achievements and the year ahead
Welcome to 2019.
As we look ahead to what the New Year offers, I thought it useful to reflect on our achievements over the past 18 months.
Work progressed in late 2017 and the early part of 2018 to formalise governance structures, develop and refine business processes and strengthen the operational capacity of Every Child CQ. This work is ongoing but the attainment of Incorporated status in August 2017 was a milestone as it provided the capacity for Every Child CQ to stand alone as an entity, independently transact business, administer finances, and position for future growth. Every Child CQ Inc as a fully-fledged, independently operating entity has also obtained an ABN, sorted taxation, finance and insurance requirements and is continuing to seek charitable status to further enhance investment opportunities.

Masterclass: Communities leading change
Evidence and practice show that the participation of intended beneficiaries and their families, neighbours, and trusted leaders can be critical to collaborations achieving impact. We have had a great response to the Masterclass Paul Schmitz is holding in Rockhampton on 7th September, 57 participants will come together for the day and will enjoy upskilling, adding new ways of thinking and practising the tools Paul will present in his Community Engagement Tool Kit. Every Child CQ is looking forward to hearing from participants and getting their comments and feedback on the day – these will be posted on the website after the event.
