The North Queensland Civil Construction Association is a member’s association designed to represent civil contractors based in North Queensland (from Mackay north) by:
This new association replaces the organisation run with the Chamber of Commerce and will be an independent body representing civil contractors right across North Queensland. Phil Cassell a founding member and current President credits this group with playing a key part in the recently enacted local government procurement policy 2017 relating to providing local contractors with extra weighting for government projects. He also credits the group with major success with PDR road projects and the security of payments act.
Membership is available for civil construction entities from all aspects of the industry from Mackay to Torres Straits and out to the NT border, covering all regional areas and contractors. It is a members group with each member paying the same fees ($550 inc GST annually) and having one voice, one seat at the table and equal concerns to be addressed. No member is bigger or smaller than any other member.
Meetings are conducted quarterly in Cairns, Townsville and Mackay however issues can be raised at any time through correspondence. Given the political tenderness of Queensland and north Queensland hosting some of the most valuable seats in the state, this group is primed to take advantage of this time and continue to hold the ear of government, but the power of advocacy is in numbers.
The civil construction industry in the north is one of the largest industries and employs a vast number of people who vote and contribute to their communities and so I urge you to consider becoming a member today.
