Tenancy G4, Centrepoint Building, corner Gregory Tce & Hartley St, Alice Springs, NT 0870 PO Box 178, Alice Springs, NT 0871 8951 5463 electorate.braitling@nt.gov.au JoshuaBurgoyneMLA joshuaburgoynent Arriving in Darwin in 1986 as an ANZ Bank employee, Kay is now well known for the 9 years where she held the position of Executive Offi cer Central Australia region for the Chamber of Commerce. She moved to Alice Springs in 2003 with Telstra Countrywide and was invaluable in the start-up for remote areas communication needs. It was this experience working with businesses and remote communities that made her the perfect choice as the Chamber of Commerces Executive Offi cer in Central Australia. Representing Tennant Creek as well as Alice Springs, Kay worked tirelessly to bring local businesses and government agencies together to ensure that commerce in our region was adequately represented. In 2010 Kay brought us our fi rst Customer Service Awards, which has now become a Territory wide event that also encompasses Business Excellence. A strong advocate for equality, she was also the mastermind behind the Women in Business lunches which show cases local women in business. The Regional Mining Seminar, Emerging Leaders of Alice and Budget Briefi ngs were also a big part of her commitment to the region. Always generous with her time, Kay has served on countless boards and committees. She was also instrumental in the implementation of the Alcohol Accord here and in Tennant Creek. From rubbing shoulders with Prime Ministers to all sorts of celebrities, Kay is in awe of the many amazing opportunities that have come her way. When asked what she loves the most about living here, she said You can be a big fi sh in a little pond there are so many opportunities available if you are prepared to take them. I love the sense of community spirit and have forged so many long term friendships through good and diffi cult times. After leaving the Chamber, Kay has continued with her quest to enable women and has been an important part of the team at the Working Womens Centre. She is retiring at the end of the year and moving to Cairns to be closer to family. She will be greatly missed and we wish her all the best. Operation Christmas Child Thank you so much to all the people who kindly fi lled Christmas gift boxes to be sent to disadvantegd children all over the world. I posted this opportunity on Facebook offering to pay the postage for the fi rst 10 boxes that were returned to me and the community did a great job responding. An initiative supported by the Baptist Church, Operation Christmas Child helps to ensure that children who would usually be left out of gift giving, get a chance to experience the joy of opening their own present. The smiles on the kids faces when they receive their boxes, makes it all worth while! Breast Cancer Aweness Month As a cause that I hold very close to my heart, it was a pleasure to be able to team up with Bill Yan MLA, Member for Namatjira to run a 100 Club to support Breast Cancer Awareness month. Congratulations to Alvin who won the Yeti gift pack valued at $500, and thank you to everyone from far and wide who purchased tickets and helped to raise $1,000 for the McGrath Foundation. This organisation do wonderful work helping people and their families affected by breast cancer. June Takes a Hike for Mums with Cancer It was a real pleasure to be able to join June Bittner on her hike up Anzac Hill on 16 October in honour of her daughter Annette who succumbed to Ovarian Cancer in 2019.
