COMMUNITY | Regional Development Australia

As Deputy Chair of Brisbane’s Regional Development Australia Committee, Linda recently attended a national forum in Canberra to be briefed by Federal Government Ministers, Parliamentary Secretaries and departmental representatives about government priorities. The event was hosted by the Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Development Maxine McKew MP.

There were also two guest speakers: demographer Bernard Salt and third sector representative Richard Spencer. Both Chairs and Deputy Chairs participated in the event and Linda accompanied the Brisbane RDA Chair, Mr John Shepley, as Brisbane’s contingent. In that week both the Federal Government’s RDA website and National Compact, which aims to strengthen the working relationship between the Federal Government and the not-for-profit sector, were launched. Both of these initiatives demonstrate new approaches to and opportunities for cooperation, partnership and engagement.

Further information about the RDA National Forum is available on the RDA website. Also, the Brisbane RDA committee has also unofficially launched its website where you can access information about local RDA events and activities.
