Surrounded by Acronyms-My intro to the WBBHSWG Meeting
18 Feb 2012
Description

 

I attended the Wide Bay Burnett Human Services Working Group (WBBHSWG) meeting yesterday. Am fast beginning to realise that as far as acronyms go, no other State can compete.

 

I met even more associates that I had never met before and networked with Council Colleagues at unfunded Councils to my north (Fraser Coast and South Burnett).  With no representation from State Government Rep’s from the North Coast Regions, the divide between Regions was apparent.  As a consequence, much of the discussion was Alien to me. 

 

I met Darren Foster from DPLG, who was able to advise that as all the flexi funds reports go to Brisbane, regional offices are not necessarily kept in the loop. 

 

My affirmation for the day was 'Try not to introduce even more acronyms', and 'just because we are reporting, it doesn't mean that all our information jewels are being shared widely'.
