True. So spend time getting to know the new Committee while you're at 
the conf, even if they're from Queensland.

Qld in particular is kind of interesting because aside form the NT it'd 
be the closest thing au has to a multi-headed state, with a fair few 
people in Townsville, Gold Coast, Cairns etc. Bunbury is the only one 
within hailing distance of Perth in WA. So if your Qld rep lived in 
Cairns, would you be any better off than if they lived in Ultimo?

Cheers; Leon
