RNA Future Directions Committee

The Future Directions Committee was formed by the RNA in 2001 to provide a youthful perspective on the future of Ekka and to engage with young people both during and outside show time.

The Committee provides strategic guidance to the RNA with a focus on promoting the RNA, the Brisbane Showgrounds and Ekka into the future. During Ekka you can find Committee members stewarding or competing in competitions, organising the hugely successful Queensland Young Farmers' Challenge and Ekka Ball or hosting sponsors and visitors to the show.

In August 2017, Ms Caitlin McConnel was elected as Chair of the RNA Future Directions Committee.
