Regional Directors update

December 12, 2019

As we all approach the festive time and many of our thoughts start to move to a well-earned holiday break, I ask you all, please watch what we wish for this Xmas New Year period. This time last year we were wishing for a banking inquiry and we got a tightening of monetary policy. We wished for much needed rain across our region and Townsville and the western regions know too well what happened occurred next. So my wish this year is that all our members, staff and friends have an enjoyable, happy and Merry Christmas and a safe New Year break with a prosperous 2020 to come.


It has been a busy 6 months in the role and I would like to thank all our members that I and our great NQ staff have met across this region, for your time and input in discussions on matters such as Red tape regulation through to the signs of improved confidence in regions. I look forward to continuing to work with our members in 2020 to address the issues at hand, we have a busy year ahead with council and state government elections allowing us to continue to put forward the strengths and benefits of a strong residential building industry. 


As the year comes to a close, we reflect on our successful awards programs across the region with MyStyle Homes taking home the coveted NQ Home of the Year. We also saw Townsville become the centre of democracy for Qld with State Parliament sitting in Townsville and whilst we have seen building activity tough in regions with some slowing in building activity we have also started to see others showing signs that recovery is just around the corner.

2020 can be the year of recovery, now is the time to look forward and the team at HIA NQ have a solid calendar of training, events and information sessions planned to assist our members take advantage of positioning their business ready for 2020.
