The Coalition of Community Boards Whitsunday Isaac Mackay Region consists of individuals who are volunteer Board members of small community-based organisations. They are currently undertaking a project ‘Revitalising Community Led Governance’ with Volunteering QLD. Updates can be found in the blog content below.
Organisations in the Whitsunday, Isaac and Mackay Regional Council areas are encouraged to get in contact and join in the collaboration.
The Planning Group meets monthly and has developed a work plan to guide its operations, other organisations take on less active but just as important support roles.
A significant piece of work the WIM CoCB group undertook in 2016 was to develop protocols for regionalising social infrastructure through authentic collaboration which takes takes time and effort. The protocols provide a tool to support collaboration, they link the effort to some of the wider responses to the reform process, and they provide a basis for engaging other stakeholders within and outside the region.
