From the Minister

Message from the Attorney-General and

Minister for Justice The Hon Yvette D’Ath MP


Firstly, I would like to wish all Queensland Club Managers and staff a Happy New Year.

The Palaszczuk Government remains committed to working with industry and the community to improve patron safety and tackle alcohol-fuelled violence in our State.

Together with the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) we thank you for your support in 2017 and look forward to working with you this year.

2018 Keno and Clubs Queensland Awards for Excellence

The Keno and Clubs Queensland Awards for Excellence will be held on 6 March 2018. At this year’s Gala Awards Dinner, there will be two Queensland Government sponsored awards: ‘Special Achievement Award – Responsible Gambling’ and ‘Special Achievement Award – Responsible Service of Alcohol’.

The Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) Award is for a club that takes ownership of RSA and approaches it with a well-rounded strategy, exceeding the government’s code of conduct.

The Responsible Gambling Award is for a club that creates a safe, supportive environment for gaming patrons and demonstrates excellence in the areas of community liaison, staff training and the implementation of responsible gaming initiatives.

It goes without saying that the responsible management of gaming and service of alcohol are critically important, so these awards are for clubs that excel. Not only are the recipients of these awards compliant, they go a step further.

I look forward to seeing the results and wish you all the best for the year ahead.
