CON­FER­ENCE BOON FOR SHIRE

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

A three-day lo­cal gov­ern­ment talk­fest sched­uled for Port Dou­glas in early Septem­ber is likely to boost the lo­cal econ­omy by around $500,000. The Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Man­agers Aus­tralia Queensland An­nual Con­fer­ence will be held in Port Dou­glas from 6-8 Septem­ber. Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil CEO Linda Cardew said se­cur­ing the an­nual con­fer­ence for Port Dou­glas was a real coup for the re­gion and would bring di­rect and in­di­rect eco­nomic ben­e­fits. “The con­fer­ence will bring at least 120 of Queensland’s most in­no­va­tive and ex­pe­ri­enced lo­cal gov­ern­ment ex­ec­u­tives to the Dou­glas Shire,” Ms Cardew said. In 2015 Ms Cardew ac­cepted the Women in Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment award on be­half of Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil at the LGMA Awards for Ex­cel­lence in Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment in recog­ni­tion for its lead­er­ship in sup­port­ing women in the work­force.
