NRLX Stakeholder Newsletter

Welcome to the winter issue of our quarterly stakeholder newsletter! Our goal is to keep you informed on the NRLX facility, giving feedback on its performance, and also updates on the exciting new upgrades which are underway. Council is committed to improving communication channels with all its stakeholders. As part of this commitment two groups have been established:

  • NRLX Operations Group: Made up of the four Casino Auctioneers Association Incorporated (CAAI) agents - Ramsey & Bulmer, T & W McCormack, George & Fuhrman and Ian Weir & Sons, plus Council staff. The group meets bi- monthly to discuss NRLX operations.
  • NRLX Advisory Group: This is a newly-formed group, which gathered for the first time on Monday 14 November. This group consists of a variety of stakeholders with the focus of discussions being centred around the NRLX upgrades, along with feedback to help Council formulate a business plan for the facility. Members of the group include Matt McCormack, David O’Reilly, Angela Seccombe, John Dougherty, Jenny Handford, John Fitzhenry, Margaret Clark and John McPaul.

If you have any views on the future planning of the NRLX, please talk to any of these group members, or contact Council’s Projects Officer Brad Birney on 6660 0319, or at
