What does your elected director do on the board?

Some members might be surprised to know that a director is not a representative. At the board table, diverse views, skills and experience come together to collectively make decisions. Each director brings a unique perspective that adds to the board’s decision making but each decision is owned by the board as a whole.  > Read more

Here’s a cassowary joke for your morning - Why did the cassowary cross the road? 🤔 To prove he wasn’t a chicken 🐓😝

There’s not many places you can spot the elusive Southern Cassowary as you take a leisurely stroll down the street, but @tropicalnorthqueensland is one of them! 🏝 #EttyBay is one of the most popular spot to see cassowaries in the wild, they’ll often be seen wondering around near the beach 🙌 Did you know that there are approximately 700 plant species endemic to the @wettropicsworldheritage area? And almost 100 species that heavily depend on the cassowary to distribute their seeds 🌴😲

No wonder it’s called the Cassowary Coast 😉
