The Australian Government has announced the appointment of Graeme Kanofski as the new chair of the Regional Development Australia (RDA) Fitzroy and Central West committee until the end of 2017.
Regional Development Minister Fiona Nash said the appointment was good news for regional policy in Queensland and would greatly assist the Fitzroy and Central West RDA committee to continue to provide vital input to the Australian and Queensland governments and inform regional policy processes.
“Graeme’s many years of experience working with local government in Queensland will help the RDA Fitzroy and Central West committee work with the community to meet and resolve local challenges head-on,” she said.
“I would like to thank the former chair Kym Mobbs for his leadership and contribution to the development of the community through the work of the RDA Fitzroy and Central West.”
Mr Kanofski’s previous roles include Gladstone Regional Council chief executive officer and transfer manager for the recently de-amalgamated Livingstone Regional Council. He also sits on the board for CQ Health.
His focus is on critical infrastructure, strategic development and long-term sustainability for the region.
Regional Development Australia consists of a national network of 55 committees designed to focus on regional economic development and facilitate local projects that aim to make a difference in their local communities.
