Doust lands role with timber lobby group
Sue Doust, one of the key organisers behind last year's campaign to save the Grafton Agricultural Research and Advisory Station, has landed an important role with lobby group Timber Communities Australia (TCA).
The peak community group yesterday announced they had engaged Mrs Doust to manage the northern New South Wales and Queensland timber communities regions.
Her new role also provides a place for her on TCA's board.
Mrs Doust's first aim will be to revive TCA links in Queensland timber producing areas.
"It has been some years since TCA had an active presence in Queensland and I am looking forward to the challenge of bringing our past members together again," she said.
Jill Lewis, national director of TCA, said Mrs Doust's appointment would bring a wealth of experience in rural matters to the board.
