On the first Tuesday of each month, the Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce hosts a meeting; and this time it was South Burnett Direction’s turn to host. Over 50 people were in attendance for the evening, in the shop-front office of South Burnett Directions next to the Kingaroy Library.

 The Chair of South Burnett Directions, Mayor Keith Campbell introduced each Committee Member, Barb Madden; Georgie Somerset; Ken Mills, John Carey and Graham Archdall; to the chamber who gave an update on their focus for the committee and why they see it as growing the South Burnett’s future.

 Economic Development Manager Phil Harding then updated the meeting on some key projects that South Burnett Directions are undertaking such as the Water for Agriculture, South Burnett Rewards, Mentoring for Growth, Improving B-Double access the Tourism Strategy implementation – all key projects that lead growth.

 Special Guests also included Professors from the University of Southern Queensland, who we are currently discussing water projects and education pathways with.

 The South Burnett Directions office is a welcome place to discuss with the South Burnett Directions staff on strategic ways to develop growth for the South Burnett region.
