First Languages Australia was thrilled to have the Managing Director of the ABC Michelle Guthrie, the Director of Regional Fiona Reynolds, Queensland State Manager Cathie Schnitzerling and Partnerships Lead Bronwyn Purvis attend the Cairns National Languages Forum in October, to meet with the First Languages Committee and our network members.

The ABC management team were keen to get to speak with the people who have contributed their stories, their language knowledge and presentation skills to the programs developed in partnership with FLA over the past three years. The management team took time to meet with the Young Champions and talked with
different groups about new ways for the broadcaster to support the work being done in communities. 

Regional Director Fiona Reynolds and FLA Manager Faith Baisden chaired a panel session titled From little things, big things grow: Working with partners - First Languages Australia and the ABC at the Puliima National Indigenous Languages Forum.
