Community volunteers are being sought to join the Regional Development Australia Southern Inland Committee.
RDA is a national network of committees made up of local people volunteering their time and energy to develop local solutions to local issues.
Leaders with the skills, experience and knowledge to build networks within the business community, industry, education and all levels of government are required to facilitate wide consultation and develop local solutions for regional economic development. They will identify infrastructure projects which contribute to long term economic growth of the region and have been identified as priorities.
RDA Southern Inland Chair Mark Schweikert said, “This is a great opportunity for people within the community who care about the Southern Inland to step forward and commit to making big decisions about our future.
“We are looking for leaders with vision, drive and project development experience who are able to foster strong communication between local communities and the Australian, state and local governments to develop solutions for regional economic development.
“Expressions of Interest are being sought from community minded individuals to volunteer and make a difference to our region. This will include the strong leaders and committed individuals who want to see positive economic change in the community.”
Interested community members who have a vision for the Southern Region are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest to represent the community and to be an advocate for the region.
EOIs are encouraged by 31 March 2017.
