Bill Loveday – President
Proposer: Margo Hickman, Seconder: Shelley Wilson
I have been President for 16 years, and BQ and bicycle riding is maintaining significant success and growth on all fronts in this time. I offer my services for another term to lead BQ and the new Management Committee towards even further growth and improvement in the Queensland bicycle riding world.
Brendan McGarry – Treasurer

My name is Brendan McGarry and I have re-nominated for the position of treasurer of BQ for the 2018 and 2019 years. I have occupied this position for the last 6 years. The treasurer’s role (over and above the role as a member of the management committee) is to oversee the financial management of the organization by working closely with the CEO and management team.
Audine Bartlett – Committee member
Proposer: Margo Hickman, Seconder: Fiona McIver
Audine Bartlett is an experienced commercial lawyer having worked in both private practice and as in-house legal counsel. She currently works in a government legal role. She believes the Bicycle Queensland board would benefit from her enthusiasm, broad skill set and knowledge of the issues facing cyclists in Brisbane.
Katie Panaretto – Committee member
Proposer: Samantha Ramsay, Seconder: Michelle Hungerford
I am a keen cyclist, GP and Public Health Physician; I am committed to health promotion and active travel of which cycling is a key part. Prior to moving to Brisbane in 2010, I lived for 15 years in Townsville, so know remoter regions of Queensland well (esp Townsville, Mt Isa and Charleville). I look forward to canvassing ideas and support the strategy and good governance of Bicycle Queensland.
