I am in contact as I am very interested in your Emerging Leaders program for 2019. I am very much involved with our local community and have volunteered for TADQ (Technical Aid to the Disabled Queensland), and I am hopeful of making the most of your established program to take up a position on a relevant board.

I see 2014 Alumni Matthew Horgan had a similar background to myself, as an Engineer within the mining industry. I understand Lauren Muir (also 2014 Alumni) is from the East Coast as I am, but was still able to commit to the program. I was interested in how she managed to achieve this.

Thank you for any insight you can provide, look forward to hearing from you.
