COTA Queensland is overseen by an active Board whose members represent different areas within the non-profit and corporate sectors.
Founded in 1957 as the Old People’s Welfare Council, COTA Queensland has been influencing decision-makers and supporting older Queenslanders for sixty years.
COTA has a proud history of identifying needs and working with stakeholders to form community organisations to provide services.
At the 60th Annual General Meeting held on 30 November 2018, voting delegates re-elected unopposed Mr. Peter Howells and Mrs. Robyn Robinson to serve a further three-year term.
COTA Queensland welcomes returned Chair Mr. Howells, an independent business consultant specialising in providing HR advice and project support to clients ranging from the corporate to the public sector and across a range of industries including professional services, finance and resources.
