Media Release – Local Leaders Needed to Drive Economic Development

Regional leaders are being sought to join the Regional Development Australia Wide Bay Burnett
Committee to fill a Committee position.

RDA is a national network of volunteer committees made up of local people volunteering their time and
energy to develop local solutions to local issues.

RDA Committees have an active and facilitative role in their communities and a clear focus on growing
strong and confident regional economies that harness their competitive advantages, seize on economic
opportunity and attract investment.

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.

“This is a great opportunity for people within the community who care about the Wide Bay Burnett
region to step forward and commit to making big decisions about our future,” RDA Wide Bay Burnett
Chair William Trevor said.

“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 are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest to represent the
community and to be an advocate for the region.

EOIs are encouraged by Wednesday, 31 January, 2018.
