At a meeting held Friday 27th Feb. 09 it was resolved that due to the Queensland State Election being called early, just three days after the ‘Great Land Use Debate”, proposed for Wednesday 18th March 09, that the function be postponed until a date to be decided. The well attended meeting, after considering the unavailability of several V.I.P.and Key Note speakers, and the fact that focus on the issues would be lost in the final week of the election, was unanimous in the decision to postpone. In retrospect JFTAG believes, that the major issue of the future “management of state lands” should be “supported and driven” by a broader based community organisation, and has resolved to pursue that objective. JFTAG sincerely thanks those who committed to the event and advises that all pre paid dinner bookings will be refunded.
