NRBM Autumn 2014
Welcome to your Autumn Issue of NRBM.Well it’s been a dry Summer and we’d like to thank all the SES and other volunteers who have helped hundreds of people keep safe during the fires we experienced throughout the region. The sunny weather did mean tourists came out in force which is good for the region and our local economy, but I think we’re all enjoying the cool down into Autumn.In this issue our cover feature is on Nortec who are known throughout the region for providing excellent recruitment and training services. What you may not know is that they have a major support services unit to help grow and develop new businesses in the region from perfumer to eco tours. They also have a youth program which both helps with training and employment opportunities and also at a community level keeping local youngsters in touch with their communities.
