This is the personal blog of Terri M Butler. I use it to express my own opinions about things I care about. I probably won’t be liveblogging any more football games.
This blog is personal: opinions expressed are my own, solely. Lest anyone be confused, nothing on this blog constitutes legal advice. It is information of a general nature only. I don’t warrant the accuracy of the contents of this blog: this is a hobby blog, written wholly in my own time, for my own enjoyment. I try to attribute things fairly: if you believe I should have attributed something to you, but haven’t done so, let me know. Links to external sites are not endorsements of their content.
A bit about me
Like a lot of people my age, I was the first in my family to go to university. I worked my way through, holding jobs like cashier, and factory data-enterer. Nowadays, I’m a principal at Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, assisting people who need help at work.
I live on Brisbane’s southside, with my husband and my two young children. My daughter’s off to kindy next year, and I’m the secretary-elect of the kindy committee. I’m looking forward to it – it should be quite different to my other committee and board experience.
I’ve got an interest in governance because I’ve been involved in committees and boards from a young age. I’m presently a member of the board of the YWCA Qld Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation. It’s a great organisation, and I’m proud to support it.
I am a member of the Labor party, and have served Labor in a number of ways, including as delegate to the state and national conferences, as a member of the national policy committee, and, presently, as a member of Labor’s national policy forum. I’m also one of the founding co-conveners of the Queensland chapter of Labor for an Australian Republic.
I authorised this webpage and you can reach me at lvl 8, 179 North Quay, Brisbane.
