It has been another year of hard work for South Burnett CTC with a “deluge” of issues that have taxed resources at times, the annual general meeting was told last week.
And chairman John Box warned there were still more challenges ahead, including the further implementation of the National Disability Scheme.
This is the first year that CEO Nina Temperton was not present at an AGM as she had suffered an injury at home during a recent storm.
Mr Box expressed his gratitude to Mrs Temperton, the senior management team, HQ administration staff and the 180-plus “positive staff” for their work during the past 12 months.
Auditor Cos Schuh said South Burnett CTC had enjoyed a strong performance despite the the depreciation of the Nanango childcare centre.
He congratulated the Board on making the tough decision to write down the centre.
“If you remove that, you have made a profit. So actually, it is a very good result,” he said.
Mr Schuh also pointed out that CTC had paid $7.4 million in wages, which was a significant contribution to the local economy.
Mr Box welcomed two new members of the Association, Senior Sergeant David Tierney, who is the officer-in-charge at Kingaroy Police Station; and Kingaroy resident Kendall Siddans.
He also congratulated CTC Disability Services Manager Barb O’Hanlon on clocking up 20 years of service with CTC.
