IQA Branches facilitate the networking and camaraderie that sets the IQA apart. It is through Branch events that lifelong friendships are made and strong connections with all parts of the industry are forged. Each Branch focuses on events that are relevant to their local area and in line with member needs. The Queensland Branch hosts a number of relevant education events annually and partners with the CCAA to deliver the annual Health and Safety conference. They work closely with the other Sub-Branches and Branches in the state to cover the needs of the Sunshine state. The Branch has a strong focus on education and working closely with suppliers. David Smith (CEO of South Queensland Lime) is the Queensland Branch Chair.
