Racing Advisory Panels

Racing Queensland values the significant contributions made by the many participants across all THREE codes of Racing and recognise the value of consultation for the betterment of the Industry.

Racing Queensland  announces the establishment of new industry advisory panels across the three codes of racing in the state.

Designed to play an important role in the future of the industry in Queensland, the industry advisory panels will meet quarterly to assist Racing Queensland in the process of formulating strategy and making recommendations on important industry matters.

Each advisory group is made up of a cross section of key industry representatives. The list of representatives on each panel is outlined below.

The groups will be chaired by Racing Queensland Directors with specific code experience and will be attended by representatives from Racing Queensland management.
