“I look forward to supporting our sector to work more closely with government and more collaboratively with other industry peak bodies to solve some of the issues that are impacting our own sector directly, but also those issues that impact other sectors such as the current housing crisis.”
SCA (Qld) President Kristi Kinast welcomed Ms Bos to her new role.
“Laura has demonstrated clear leadership and advocacy skills throughout her career, and her strategic mindset, marketing, organisational and stakeholder engagement experience will be crucial assets for SCA (Qld), our industry members and the 238,000 households that reside in apartments.”
