BCCA supporting agriculture industry for 20 years

THE Burnett Catchment Care Association celebrated its 20th anniversary this week with a members' lunch being held at the Gayndah Town Hall.

Some of those in attendance were inaugural members, like BCCA senior treasurer Tom Bancroft who has seen it grow from a small volunteer group into what it has become today.

"Very few organisations last as long as we have," Mr Bancroft said

"With 40-45 members as well as volunteer and paid staff we have grown well."

The BCCA is focused on the sustainable use of natural resources as a way of keeping the agricultural sector strong and prepared for future climate change.

North Burnett Regional Councillor Paul Lobegeier is the BCCA chairman and said he was proud of what the association had achieved in its history.

"It's a great achievement for our association to grow from a humble volume base into what we are today," Mr Lobegeier said.

"(We now have) a greater capacity to assist in the sustainability of natural resources and agriculture."
