Mayor Greg Williamson said Mackay Regional Council is proud to be a member of the My Community Directory and Diary platforms, which are important community resources. 

The platforms were originally developed in the Mackay region, but have grown and are used across Australia. In 2019, Community Information Exchange won the Telstra Business Award for Social Change Maker 2019.

Now as a Brisbane-based organisation, Community Information Exchange has undertaken work across multiple sectors and agencies to promote community information exchange to ensure that community and providers have improved capability to navigate both the social and health sectors.

Mrs Barron and Mrs Cox both presented at the event and discussed:

  • how NQPHN has utilised the platform to support communities and providers across North Queensland
  • the Community Information Exchange products, future integrations, and reflection on the journey this far.
