Dear Members and Supporters,


You are invited to attend a meeting with ASIC
24th June, 2009 – 10.00am – 12 Noon
Hervey Bay Boat Club

RSVP by tomorrow to

Following nomination by your respective representative body,  I wish to extend an invitation to meet with me on Wednesday 24th June, 2009.   I will host the meeting to be held in the  Board Room, Hervey Bay Boat Club, Buccaneer Drive, Urangan between 10.00-12.00noon, with a light luncheon to be served.
This meeting is part of an increased level of engagement between ASIC and its stakeholders, including those in regional areas, and follows the implementation in late 2008, of a significant restructuring of ASIC.  Among the key objectives of that restructure is ensuring a balance between national and regional issues, and more proactive knowledge of emerging developments.  I will discuss the restructure, its key objectives and the role of Regional Commissioners at our meeting.

The key aim of the meeting is to establish 2-way communication and networks between ASIC Queensland and your region, and I have already met with the Brisbane offices of each of your representative bodies.  I look forward to the opportunity of hearing directly from you as to the important issues in and for your region, likely developments over the next 6 to 12 months, and also your views on some of the issues which have arisen from the current economic conditions.  It is hoped that these regional liaison meetings will be able to be conducted twice a year, as one element of an ongoing liaison with your region.

I do not propose a formal meeting agenda, but rather to lead a general discussion around the above topic areas and others you may wish to raise.  Please feel free to email me prior to the meeting with particular topics for discussion should you wish to do so.

Again, we very much appreciate your time and willingness to engage with us in such consultation meetings and I look forward to meeting you on 24th June.  We would appreciate your  rsvp by 17th June 2009 to Sue Fosten on 07 3867 4738  or

Kind Regards
Maree Blake
Regional Commissioner Queensland
